Six Colleges at UC San Diego

Review the Colleges so you know how to rank them on your UC Application.

Residence for tuition purposes at UC San Diego

Living at a California address does not mean you automatically have resident status in terms of tuition. The financial independence requirement makes it extremely difficult for most undergraduate students whose parents are not California residents to qualify for classification as a resident at the University of California. This includes students from community colleges and other post-secondary institutions within California.

Transfer students who were classified as residents of California at their previous school should not assume that they will be classified as residents at UC San Diego.
See the Registrar's Office webpages for more information on California residence for fees and tuition.
