Default Can I set up residency for college tuition purposes within 6 months ??

I read that I can establish in-state residency sometime from 6 months to 1 year..so if I relocate to Cali in January and plan to attend college starting next fall, which colleges/universities will accept me as a state resident ??
I'll be so grateful for any help

1 year and you can't be supported by someone out of the state/country.

"To be considered a California resident for purposes of fees, an out-of-state student must have lived in California for more than one year preceding the residence determination date, relinquish residence in other states, show an intent to establish residency in California and demonstrate financial independence. Unmarried undergraduates from other states qualify as financially independent if they were not claimed by their parents or others as dependents for tax purposes for two preceding tax years and if their annual income is sufficient to meet their needs."

So..basically you will have to move to CA, establish residency and support yourself fully for one year. Since I don't believe you can get loans/grants without being a student, you would have to get a job for the first year before you get that tuition break.

that's what i'm planning to do, getting a job then apply for college as soon as i become a resident.. i meant that i'll rely on grants and loans whenever i start college not when i relocate

and thank you all for your help, really appreciated
