The establishment of nonresident tuition is based on state policy guidelines developed by the California Postsecondary Education Commission (CPEC) in its Report of the Advisory Committee on Nonresident Tuition Policies Under Senate Concurrent Resolution 69.
As California's public postsecondary education segments annually adjust the level of nonresident tuition they charge out-of-state students, the nonresident tuition methodologies they develop and use are to take into consideration, at a minimum, the following two factors: (1) the total nonresident charges imposed by each of their public comparison institutions and (2) the full average cost of instruction. In addition, each segment should endeavor to maintain that increases in the level of nonresident tuition are gradual, moderate, and predictable, by providing nonresident students with a minimum of a 10-month notice of tuition increases. Each governing board is directed to develop its own methodology for adjusting the level of nonresident tuition, but those methodologies should be consistent with this recommendation and existing statutes.
