LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3255, Committee on Higher Education. Postsecondary education: omnibus bill.
(1) Existing law requires the Commission on Teacher Credentialing to maintain for public record certain enumerated information and authorizes the commission to disclose that information. Existing law generally prohibits the disclosure by the commission of information absent an order from a court of competent jurisdiction.
This bill would, for purposes of the ongoing evaluation of teacher preparation programs at the California State University, authorize the commission to provide to the Office of the Chancellor of the California State University or the State Department of Education any data it collects to the extent that the disclosure is permitted by state and federal privacy laws.
(2) Existing law requires a postsecondary educational institution that is a “qualifying institution” under the Cal Grant program to designate a staff member who is employed within the financial aid office, or another appropriate office or department, of the institution to serve as its homeless and foster student liaison.
Existing law requires the California State University and each community college district, and requests the University of California, with respect to each campus in their respective jurisdictions that administers a priority enrollment system, to grant priority for registration for enrollment to a foster youth or former foster youth, as defined, and, until January 1, 2020, to a homeless youth, as defined.
This bill would add homeless and foster student liaisons to the groups for whom priority for registration for enrollment is required or requested under that provision. Because the bill would amend the requirements relating to student eligibility for priority registration at community college campuses, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(3) Under existing law, the segments of the public postsecondary education system in the state include the University of California, which is administered by the Regents of the University of California, the California State University, which is administered by the Trustees of the California State University, and the California Community Colleges, which is administered by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges.
Existing law establishes uniform residency requirements for purposes of ascertaining the amount of tuition and fees to be paid by students of public postsecondary education institutions. Existing law entitles a student to resident classification for the purpose of determining tuition and fees if the student is a member of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed in the state on active duty, except as specified.
This bill would entitle a student to resident classification for that same purpose if the student is a member of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed in the state, regardless of whether the student is on active duty, subject to the same exception. The bill would define “Armed Forces of the United States” for this purpose. To the extent the bill would require community college districts to exempt more students from nonresident tuition, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(4) Existing law authorizes a community college district to accept the determination of another community college district as to a student’s residency classification, if certain conditions are satisfied relating to cross-enrollment in online education.
This bill would instead authorize a community college district to accept the determination of another community college district as to a student’s residency classification pursuant to a process established by the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, or if those conditions are satisfied.
(5) Existing law exempts a student, other than a nonimmigrant alien, as defined, from nonresident tuition at the California State University and the California Community Colleges if the student has a total of 3 or more years of attendance, or attainment of equivalent credits earned while in California, at California high schools, California adult schools, campuses of the California Community Colleges, or a combination of those schools, as specified, or if the student completes 3 or more years of full-time high school coursework, and a total of 3 or more years of attendance in California elementary schools, California secondary schools, or a combination of California elementary and secondary schools.
This bill would specify that the 3 or more years of full-time high school coursework referenced above as part of the requirements in existing law be in California.
(6) The Cal Grant Program establishes the Cal Grant A and Cal Grant B Entitlement awards, the California Community College Transfer Entitlement awards, the Competitive Cal Grant A and B awards, the Cal Grant C award, and the Cal Grant T award under the administration of the Student Aid Commission, and establishes eligibility requirements for awards under these programs for participating students attending qualifying institutions. For purposes of the Cal Grant Program, existing law defines “access costs” as living expenses, transportation expenses, supplies, and books.
This bill would include technology within the meaning of “access costs” for purposes of the Cal Grant Program and would make a related conforming change for purposes of Cal Grant C awards.
(7) Existing law requires the Student Aid Commission to establish a 12-member advisory panel, which includes one representative of the California Postsecondary Education Commission and one college campus financial aid officer appointed by the commission.
This bill would remove from the advisory panel’s membership the one representative of the California Postsecondary Education Commission and would add one additional campus financial aid officer appointed by the commission to the advisory panel’s membership.
(8) Existing law authorizes community college districts to admit nonresident students, and requires community college districts to charge a tuition fee to nonresident students, with specified exceptions. Existing law requires the governing board of each community college district to set the nonresident tuition fee not later than February 1 of each year for the succeeding fiscal year.
This bill would instead require the governing board of each community college district to set the nonresident tuition fee not later than March 1 of each year for the succeeding fiscal year.
(9) Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law establishes community college districts throughout the state, and authorizes them to provide instruction at the campuses they operate. Existing law requires the board of governors to appoint a chief executive officer, known as the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, and requires the chancellor to execute the duties and responsibilities delegated to him or her by the board of governors. The duties and responsibilities of the chancellor include the submission, on or before July 1 of each year, of a report to the Department of Finance and the Legislature including, among other information, the amount of full-time equivalent students claimed by each community college district for career development and college preparation courses and classes and the related specific certificate programs and course titles.
This bill would instead require this report to be submitted to the Department of Finance and the Legislature on or before November 1 of each year.
(10) Existing law states a finding and declaration of the Legislature relative to the California State University’s Early Start Program and requires, on or before January 1, 2019, that the Legislative Analyst’s Office, in consultation with the university, submit a report to the Legislature including specified data relating to the California State University Early Start Program. Existing law makes these provisions inoperative on January 1, 2019, and repeals them on January 1, 2020.
This bill would (1) include a new finding and declaration of the Legislature regarding an August 2017 Executive order of the Trustees of the California State University that makes changes to the university’s assessment and placement policies and remediation-related strategies in mathematics and English, including the Early Start Program, (2) delete the report on the California State University Early Start Program, (3) require, by December 1, 2021, that the Legislative Analyst’s Office submit a report to the Legislature detailing the impact of policy changes required pursuant to the executive order relative to incoming freshmen identified as in need of remediation, and (4) make the operative and repeal dates for these provisions January 1, 2021, and January 1, 2022, respectively.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

A regionally accredited institution that was deemed qualified by the commission to participate in the Cal Grant Program for the 2000–01 academic year shall retain its eligibility as long as it maintains its existing accreditation status.
(C) A California public postsecondary educational institution.
(2) (A) The institution shall provide information on where to access California license examination passage rates for the most recent available year from graduates of its undergraduate programs leading to employment for which passage of a California licensing examination is required, if that data is electronically available through the Internet Web site of a California licensing or regulatory agency. For purposes of this paragraph, “provide” may exclusively include placement of an Internet Web site address labeled as an access point for the data on the passage rates of recent program graduates on the Internet Web site where enrollment information is also located, on an Internet Web site that provides centralized admissions information for postsecondary educational systems with multiple campuses, or on applications for enrollment or other program information distributed to prospective students.
(B) The institution shall be responsible for certifying to the commission compliance with the requirements of subparagraph (A).
(3) (A) The commission shall certify by November 1 of each year the institution’s latest official three-year cohort default rate and graduation rate as most recently reported by the United States Department of Education. For purposes of this section, the graduation rate is the percentage of full-time, first-time degree or certificate-seeking undergraduate students who graduate in 150 percent or less of the expected time to complete degree requirements as most recently reported publicly in any format, including preliminary data records, by the United States Department of Education.
(B) For purposes of the 2011–12 academic year, an otherwise qualifying institution with a three-year cohort default rate reported by the United States Department of Education that is equal to or greater than 24.6 percent shall be ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution.
(C) For purposes of the 2012–13 academic year, and every academic year thereafter, an otherwise qualifying institution with a three-year cohort default rate that is equal to or greater than 15.5 percent, as certified by the commission on October 1, 2011, and every year thereafter, shall be ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution.
(D) (i) An otherwise qualifying institution that becomes ineligible under this paragraph for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards shall regain its eligibility for the academic year for which it satisfies the requirements established in subparagraph (B), (C), or (F), as applicable.
(ii) If the United States Department of Education corrects or revises an institution’s three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate that originally failed to satisfy the requirements established in subparagraph (B), (C), or (F), as applicable, and the correction or revision results in the institution’s three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate satisfying those requirements, that institution shall immediately regain its eligibility for the academic year to which the corrected or revised three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate would have been applied.
(E) An otherwise qualifying institution for which no three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate has been reported by the United States Department of Education shall be provisionally eligible to participate in the Cal Grant Program until a three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate has been reported for the institution by the United States Department of Education.
(F) For purposes of the 2012–13 academic year, and every academic year thereafter, an otherwise qualifying institution with a graduation rate of 30 percent or less, as certified by the commission pursuant to subparagraph (A), shall be ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution, except as provided for in subparagraph (H).
(G) Notwithstanding any other law, the requirements of this paragraph shall not apply to institutions with 40 percent or less of undergraduate students borrowing federal student loans, using information reported to the United States Department of Education for the academic year two years before the academic year in which the commission is certifying the three-year cohort default rate or graduation rate pursuant to subparagraph (A).
(H) Notwithstanding subparagraph (F), an otherwise qualifying institution that maintains a three-year cohort default rate that is less than 15.5 percent and a graduation rate above 20 percent for students taking 150 percent or less of the expected time to complete degree requirements, as certified by the commission pursuant to subparagraph (A), shall be eligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution through the 2016–17 academic year.
(I) The commission shall do all of the following:
(i) Notify initial Cal Grant recipients seeking to attend, or attending, an institution that is ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards under subparagraph (C) or (F) that the institution is ineligible for initial Cal Grant awards for the academic year for which the student received an initial Cal Grant award.
(ii) Notify renewal Cal Grant recipients attending an institution that is ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution under subparagraph (C) or (F) that the student’s Cal Grant award will be reduced by 20 percent, or eliminated, as appropriate, if the student attends the ineligible institution in an academic year in which the institution is ineligible.
(iii) Provide initial and renewal Cal Grant recipients seeking to attend, or attending, an institution that is ineligible for initial and renewal Cal Grant awards at the institution under subparagraph (C) or (F) with a complete list of all California postsecondary educational institutions at which the student would be eligible to receive an unreduced Cal Grant award.
(iv) (I)   Establish an appeal process for an otherwise qualifying institution that fails to satisfy the three-year cohort default rate and graduation rate requirements in subparagraphs (C) and (F), respectively.
(II) The commission may grant an appeal for an academic year only if the commission has determined the institution has a cohort size of 20 individuals or less and the cohort is not representative of the overall institutional performance.
(m) “Satisfactory academic progress” means those criteria required by applicable federal standards published in Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The commission may adopt regulations defining “satisfactory academic progress” in a manner that is consistent with those federal standards.

 Section 69439 of the Education Code is amended to read:

69439.
 (a) For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:
(1) “Career pathway” has the same meaning as set forth in Section 88620.
(2) “Economic security” has the same meaning as set forth in Section 14005 of the Unemployment Insurance Code.
(3) “Industry cluster” has the same meaning as set forth in Section 88620.
(4) “Long-term unemployed” means, with respect to an award applicant, a person who has been unemployed for more than 26 weeks at the time of submission to the commission of his or her application.

(b) A Cal Grant C award shall be utilized only for occupational or technical training in a course of not less than four months. There shall be the same number of Cal Grant C awards each year as were made in the 2000–01 fiscal year. The maximum award amount and the total amount of funding shall be determined each year in the annual Budget Act.
(c) The commission may use criteria it deems appropriate in selecting students to receive grants for occupational or technical training and shall give special consideration to the social and economic situations of the students applying for these grants, giving additional weight to disadvantaged applicants, applicants who face economic hardship, and applicants who face particular barriers to employment. Criteria to be considered for these purposes shall include, but are not limited to, all of the following:
(1) Family income and household size.
(2) Student’s or the students’ parent’s household status, including whether the student is a single parent or child of a single parent.
(3) The employment status of the applicant and whether the applicant is unemployed, giving greater weight to the long-term unemployed.
(d) The Cal Grant C award recipients shall be eligible for renewal of their grants until they have completed their occupational or technical training in conformance with terms prescribed by the commission. A determination by the commission for a subsequent award year that the program under which a Cal Grant C award was initially awarded is no longer deemed to receive priority shall not affect an award recipient’s renewal. In no case shall the grants exceed two calendar years.
(e) Cal Grant C awards may be used for institutional fees, charges, and other costs, including tuition, plus training-related costs, such as special clothing, local transportation, required tools, equipment, supplies, technology, books, and living expenses. In determining the individual award amounts, the commission shall take into account the financial means available to the student to fund his or her course of study and costs of attendance as well as other state and federal programs available to the applicant.
