CA residency data for graduate students in the most recent year is preliminary and excludes some categories of residency not yet reflected in UCOP data.

Academic Doctoral – Programs at the University of California that are offering doctoral degrees that are designated as academic.
Academic Masters – Programs at the University of California that are offering masters degrees that are designated as academic.
Graduate Professional – Programs at the University of California that are offering degrees that are designated as professional. These programs very often lead to clinical practice – MD, DDS e.g.
Graduate Self-supporting Programs - Some UC graduate professional programs, primarily master’s programs, follow a self-supporting funding model. These programs receive no state support and are funded entirely by revenues generated by the program and other non-state revenues. Many self-supporting programs serve nontraditional populations such as full-time employees, mid-career professionals, international students with specialized goals and students whose education is supported by their employers.
Health Science Resident – Individuals completing the residency portion of their health science professional degree (e.g., Medicine, Pharmacy, Optometry)
CA Resident - Students who are eligible for California resident tuition and fees.
Non-Resident Domestic - Nonresident students who come from outside California but within the United States to attend a UC campus. They must meet higher admissions criteria and pay Non-resident Supplemental Tuition in addition to in-state charges.
Non-Resident International - Nonresident students who come from outside the United States to attend a UC campus. They must meet higher admissions criteria and pay Non-resident Supplemental Tuition in addition to in-state charges.
