Seasonal Agricultural Exemption

Español

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.

ESL Spotlight

Maria Ayala
ESL Student

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
