Purpose of the AB540 Eligibility Changes

Current Logic in CCCApply: Appendix C: AB540 Waiver Algorithm

After the Preliminary Residency Determination is set, the AB540 Eligibility Flag is set according to the following logic:

  1. The response to both of the following questions on the Education Page is “Yes”:
    “I have graduated from a California high school or have attained the equivalent thereof, such as a High School Equivalency Certificate, issued by the California State GED Office or a Certificate of Proficiency, resulting from the California High School Proficiency Examination.”
    “I have attended high school in California for three or more years.”

  2. AND the Preliminary Residency Determination is NOT “1 (Resident)”

  3. AND the “Visa Type is null” OR “Visa Type is T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, U1, U2, U3, U4, U5”.

  4. THEN the AB540 Eligibility flag is “Yes”; otherwise it is “No”.
    All data items referred to above, as well as the eligibility flag, are available in the standard download file for all colleges.
