The University of California system offers reduced tuition and fees to students who are able to demonstrate that they meet the requirements for California residency for tuition purposes as determined by guidelines established by the UC Regents. For more details, please visit the following websites:

All newly admitted graduate students are required to complete a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR) so that the Office of the University Registrar can determine whether you are eligible for California residency for tuition purposes. Only the UC Davis Residence Deputies are authorized to make an official determination of California residency status for that purpose.
