Our Best Answer - What is a SLR?

SLR or Statement of Legal Residence

SLR stands for Statement of Legal Residence. This form must be completed by all students (undergraduate and graduate) who are attending UCSB for the first time, returning to UCSB after a break in enrollment, or continuing UCSB students who wish to be considered for a change of classification from nonresident to California resident for a future term.

Instructions on how to complete the SLR and deadlines for submission are available on the Office of the Registrar's Residency web page.
