University Regular Sessions

Applicants are required to include their correct social security numbers (individual taxpayer identification numbers) in designated places on applications for admission pursuant to the authority contained in Section 41201, Title 5, California Code of Regulations, and Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code. The University uses the social security number to identify records pertaining to the student as well to identify the student for purposes of financial aid eligibility and disbursement and the repayment of financial aid and other debts payable to the institution. Also, the Internal Revenue Service requires the University to file information returns that include the student's social security number and other information such as the amount paid for qualified tuition, related expenses, and interest on educational loans. That information is used to help determine whether a student, or a person claiming a student as a dependent, may take a credit or deduction to reduce federal income taxes.

Reclassification of Residency

A student who has been classified as a nonresident may seek reclassification for any subsequent term.  The student must complete the CSU Residence Questionnaire Form, demonstrate proof of financial independence and supporting documentation showing evidence of physical presence and intent to remain in California indefinitely.  The deadlines to submit documentation are below:
