Hello,

I've tried to find information about this on my own for a while now but have been unsuccessful, so I'm turning to you guys.

Do you have to be a California resident in order to do the clinical portion of BSN programs at all CSUs and UCs? I know of at least one school (Cal State Sacramento) where this is true, but I don't know if this is a state-wide policy or if it depends on the school. Any info would be much appreciated because I'm currently searching for which schools to apply to.

Thanks!

When I attended another campus of the CSU system this was not the policy. I would call each nursing school you are interested in and ask before you go through the trouble of applying. Besides, once you have lived in CA for one year, you are considered to be a resident.

Unfortunately that's not true for purposes of tuition - but it might be for doing clinicals. Thanks for reminding me, I'll check that out.

A year = residency for most schools. You can petition for residency if you have any of these going for you:

The following actions provide intent:

  • Filed California income Tax Form 540 as a resident. The completed tax form must be shown.
  • Certificate of employment, a formal letter from employer, or salary records
  • Registered to vote and voting in California
  • Ownership of residential property or occupancy of rented or leased property in California
  • License in California for professional practice
  • Possession of a California motor vehicle registration
  • Establish and maintain active bank accounts in California
  • Filed a lawsuit in California as a resident
  • Possession of a California driver's license or ID Card
  • Maintain California as your home of record while in the armed forces
  • Armed forces member, stationed on active duty in California
  • Military dependent of an armed forces’ member, stationed on active duty in California

California AB 540: Special exemption from out-of-state tuition

Due to recent legislation, certain non-residents who have attended a high school (public or private) in California for three or more years and have graduated from a California high school or attained the equivalent in California prior to the Semester, (for example passing the GED or California High School Proficiency exam), may qualify for this exemption.

When I was there in July 07 visiting my mom she took me to get an ID card, only it's in my maiden name since I didn't have my marriage license with me. I WAS going to move there, that's why I got the ID but I ended up coming back to Michigan. So...I wonder if I'm still considered a resident in Cali?
