In absentia status is a form of registration available to academic and professional graduate students undertaking coursework or research related to their degree programs outside of California. In absentia registration replaces leaves taken for research purposes outside the state of California. Students registered in absentia are only assessed full health insurance fees, and 15 percent of the combined University Tuition and Student Services Fees. If applicable, students are also assessed nonresident tuition and/or professional school fees. For further details please see the Graduate Division policy on In Absentia Registration.
The In Absentia Application form is a Special Enrollment Petition e-Form in CalCentral.
