Any person who is a high school graduate or equivalent thereof, or who is eighteen years of age or older and who can profit from the instruction, is eligible to apply for admission to Las Positas College.
In determining tuition and enrollment fees, students fall under the following two categories:
Those who have legally resided in California for at least one year and a day prior to the first day of a new semester or session. California State law requires that students give evidence of physical presence in California for one year and their intent to make California their home state for other than a temporary period.
Non-Residents (out-of-state and international students):
Those who do not meet the California Residency requirements as previously outlined. Please refer to Student Fees, Tuition, & Refunds for cost of attendance.
State legislation was recently passed that may exempt certain non-resident students from non-resident tuition fees. Contact the Office of Admissions & Records for more information at 925.424.1500.
All questions concerning residence status can be sent via email to the Office of Admissions & Records.
