I am a non-immigrant with a currently valid visa (for example, student or tourist visa). Do I qualify for in-state tuition?
You do NOT qualify for in-state tuition under the new law (AB 540). However, you may qualify for in-state tuition as a “resident” if your non-immigrant status allows you to “establish domicile” in the U.S., and you satisfy other requirements for residency. For example, persons with “V” or “K” visas, and citizens of Micronesia or the Marshall Islands should be able to pay in-state tuition if they have lived in the state for more than one year.
