Welcome to the community! to qualify for in-state tuition you must have a residency and to acquire that it is 366 days in the state of CA this is what I found online- "If you are trying to establish your residency to qualify for state tuition, you must live in California for more than a year (at least 366 days) directly before the residence determination date. To get state tuition you must also come to California with the intent to live there, not just to go to school."

@mathgeek this is a good response and I'd suggest you convert it to an answer instead of a comment like @DebaterMAX said. You deserve any karma from upvotes/getting an accepted answer!

at least one year, if you search it up, it states that you must be continuously physically present in California for more than one year (366 days) immediately prior to the residence determination date of the term for which you request resident status.
