AB 1796 – Requires The California State University Grant Certain Students The Right To Reenroll After Withdrawing Or Stopping Out
AB 1796 requires the Trustees of the California State University and requests that the Regents of the University of California require each campus to grant students the right to reenroll in baccalaureate degree programs after withdrawing or stopping out. The student must be in good standing with the university to qualify.
The bill further authorizes the university to require students to pay any outstanding tuition or fees to be eligible and may require the student to submit transcripts and proof of good academic standing if the student enrolled at another college or university.
The bill also encourages the universities to begin outreach campus programs to students who left campus without completing their baccalaureate degree program, beginning with students closest to graduation. For purposes of calculating the student’s real graduation time, under a graduation initiative, the universities may exclude the semesters or years in which the student was not enrolled in any classes from the student’s time to graduation.
(AB 1796 adds Section 66208 to the Education Code.)
