National (Out-of-State) Student Resources

Welcome to California and the Aggie Family!

National students interact with Orientation Leaders during the program.

Any incoming student who is a U.S. Resident from outside the state of California is considered a national student. UC Davis values the various perspectives, experiences and diversity that national students bring to the campus community.

Residency Information

All UC Davis students are required to submit a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR). This statement is used to determine tuition costs. It is VERY important that this statement is filed in a timely manner with accurate information. Please visit the Office of the University Registrar for detailed information regarding residency and the Statement of Legal Residence (SLR).
