Seasonal Agricultural Exemption


Students may be exempt from paying non-resident tuition if that student, or student's parent, earned a livelihood primarily by performing agricultural labor (seasonal employment in connection with actual production of agricultural crops, including seeding, thinning and harvesting) for hire in California and other states for at least two months per year in each of the last two years. 

The student must provide evidence that the student himself or herself, or the student’s parents with whom the student is living, earns a livelihood primarily preforming agricultural labor for hire in California and has performed such labor for at least two months in each of the preceding two years.

The Exemption is not available for persons who are absent from California, but who are taking distance learning education classes from California community colleges.
The student must file an exemption request with the college, including a signed affidavit, which indicates that the student has met all applicable conditions described above. Affidavits are available at the Admissions and Records office. Non-resident students meeting the criteria will be exempted from the payment of non-resident tuition, but they will not be classified as California residents. They will continue to be nonresidents.
