Burden of Proof (Title 5, 54026)

with the individual.

You must have been physically present in California for one year and one day prior to the first day of semester/term you
wish to be declared a resident for tuition purposes. You must have been physically present in the State of California for
one year as of the residency determination date, before the semester begins. You will be required to prove physical
presence.

factor is controlling. You must manifest intent to become a California resident. The items of intent must be at least one

The California Education Code requires that the financial independence of a nonresident student seeking reclassification
as a resident be included in the factors to be considered in the determination of residence. You must not have received

the term/semester and include NAME and A PHYSICAL CALIFORNIA ADDRESS. With the exception of the driver's license
or California ID, documents CANNOT be older than 2 years prior to the start of the term for which residency is being
