Bethesda University is a private, religious institution, which means it has the same tuition for residents of California as it does for students who live in other states.

Public colleges and universities receive funding from the state government. Public, state schools can offer lower tuition for students who meet the requirements for in-state residency.

Attending a college where you are eligible for in-state tuition can drastically reduce the total cost of attending college. Don't forget to check your state's requirements for in-state tuition. Each state has different requirements to qualify as in-state resident. In many states, students must have lived in the state for 12 months before starting school to qualify for in-state tuition.
