Corrected Error in Residency Logic (Area B) for Foster Youth Eligibility
An error was corrected in the residency logic (Area B) relative to non-resident Foster Youths. Under AB669, current and former Foster Youth students, under age 20, residing in California now, are eligible for certain benefits, including in-state tuition. We have corrected the logic to code foster youths as follows:
IF residency status = [Non-resident and a Foster Youth] THEN = Class B2* and set Flag 70
IF residency status = [California resident and a Foster Youth] THEN = code as CA resident (B1). No additional flag is set.
If the foster youth student is already CA resident, the logic considers them a California resident and no additional flag will be set to identify them as a foster youth. See the Area B residency logic in the OpenCCCApply Submission Calculations document.
