Service members originally from or currently stationed in California may be eligible for a discounted tuition rate of $46 per credit/SH when enrolling in Coastline’s Military Distance Learning Program.  

  • Active Duty students and their dependents, who are stationed in the state of California, can be granted a resident classification (for tuition calculation only) by submitting a Statement of Residence and a copy of their Leave and Earning Statement (with state taxes affiliated with California) OR a copy of orders demonstrating that they are stationed in California. 
  • Current California residents who meet state residency requirements and who apply online through OpenCCC are usually classified as California Residents at the time they apply to Coastline. 
  • GoArmyEd students who are California Residents but are not currently stationed in the state of California are required to complete a Statement of Residence and submit two official documents to demonstrate their residency status. 


Students can view their current residency status by accessing their MyCCC portal and visiting the Banner Self-Service Student Records “View Student Information” menu.  More information about residency requirements, document criteria and the Statement of Residency form can be found at http://www.coastline.edu/admissions/residency-requirements/.
