Nevada Residents Who Attend TEA Can Receive California In State Tuition
Under California Law AB 540, residents of Nevada Can Receive California In-State Tuition
Yes, you read that right. Under California State Law AB 540, certain non-resident students who have attended high school in California and receive a high school diploma can be exempt from payment of non-resident tuition at any public university. This includes all University of California schools and all California State colleges. View the applicable University of California admissions page here, which includes contact at each university should you like to inquire directly.
We can confirm that this exemption is available to graduates from our high school program. One of our recent alumni who resided in Nevada during her final three years at TEA is receiving in-state tuition at University of California at San Diego. She met two of conditions in AB 540 – she attended a California high school for 3 years and she graduated from the same high school.
The affidavit is found here. The affidavit and supporting documentation of high school attendance and graduation should be submitted after the admission offer is made to the student and before the student pays tuition and fees.
