The California Education Code Section 68044 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. In order to establish financial independence,
a student seeking reclassification must meet the following criteria for the current and immediately preceding three calendar years: (1)
the student has not been claimed as an exemption for state and federal tax purposes by his or her nonresident parents, (2) the student
has not received more than $750 from his or her nonresident parents, and (3) the student has not lived in the home of his or her
nonresident parents for more than six weeks in any given year.
Failure to satisfy all of the financial independence criteria for the entire period will not necessarily result in a denial of residency status
if the durational requirement is met and the manifestation of intent is sufficiently strong. Financial independence is of greater
significance for the current and immediately preceding calendar year. Failure to satisfy all three of the financial independence criteria
for the current and immediately preceding calendar year will normally result in a determination of nonresidency. Financial
independence or want of it, for the second and third calendar years immediately preceding the year in which reclassification is requested
will be considered together with all other relevant factors in determining intent with no special weight attached to the financial
independence factor. Therefore, please answer all of the following questions:
1. Indicate your source of financial support in:
2018–present:________________________________________________________________
2018–2017: _________________________________________________________________
