California Residency Requirements - Categories


Applicants for admission who have met the residence requirements may be divided into the following categories:

  1. Applicants whose legal residence is in the Pasadena Area Community College District. This consists of the following school districts: Arcadia, a portion of El Monte, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, Rosemead, San Marino, South Pasadena and Temple City.
  2. Applicants whose legal residence is in California but not within the area of a California community college district and who therefore may attend a community college of their choice.
  3. Applicants whose legal residence is within another California community college district.
  4. Applicants who do not qualify as legal California residents for tuition purposes are determined to have nonresident status. Such applicants will be required to pay nonresident tuition fees.
