Is this for real? Cost of 1 year at Cal is 53k

<p>Okay when I first got my acceptance to Cal and got my initial financial offer, the page said that the total cost for one year at Cal was around $26,000.</p>

<p>Then last week I noticed it had climbed to $33000.</p>

<p>Today I checked it and now...</p>

<p>Is this for REAL!? Someone PLEASE tell me this is an error and no one else is seeing this. My initial aid offer was $23k. If this is true then I am 30k SHORT. OMG. :(</p>

<p>I am going to call them soon to see what's up but just want to make sure no one else is seeing this. This can't be for real.</p>

<p>[edit] Figured it out right after posting. They classified me as non-resident for some reason. lol. Strangely though, my Bear Facts page says I am a "CALIFORNIA RESIDENT." Going to call them up anyway to make sure.</p>

<p>OMG!! ahaha I read your edit. Man, you must have been freaking out. But yes, you're definitely on the right track w/ calling them to tell them that you're actually a resident. Did you forget to submit your SLR (Statement of Legal Residence)?</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>$5k in "fees"? Wth.</p>

<p>omg the same for me except 49k. i already submitted my SLC too!</p>

<p>what number did u call?? i need to call em too!</p>

<p>Same exact thing happened to me today. I called the Residence Affairs Office and they said that all students are considered out of state until their SLR is processed. I turned mine in on the 31st and I guess they have not processed it yet. After it is processed he said it would revert back to the in-state rates.</p>

<p>I'm going to call financial aid on Monday just to verify that.</p>
