AB 343 NONRESIDENT TUITION EXEMPTION PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CODE 68075.6
A student of the California Community Colleges who has a special immigrant visa that has been granted a status under
Section 1244 of Public Law 110-181 or under Public Law 109-163, or is a refugee admitted to the United States under Section
1157 of Title 8 of the United States Code, and who, upon entering the United States, settled in California, shall be exempt
from paying the nonresident tuition fee required by Section 76140 for the length of time he or she lives in this state up to the
minimum time necessary to become a resident.
If a student is granted an exemption from nonresident tuition, the exemption will expire one year from the date
the student settled in California upon entering the United States.
It is the student’s responsibility to submit a Residency Reclassification Form, along with documentation, before
or after the exemption expires in order to establish California Residency Status at College of the Redwoods.
Applying for this exemption does not alter the student’s responsibility to pay, by the campus deadline, any
nonresident tuition and associated fees that may be due before eligibility is determined.
