AB 2315 requires the governing board of each community college district to implement a process that students, staff, and faculty can use to declare an affirmed name, gender, or both name and gender identification used for their records where legal names are not required by law. Upon request, the community college campus must update the name on a school-issued email address, campus identification cards, class rosters, transcripts, diplomas, certificates of completion, or similar records.

Commencing with the 2023–24 academic year, each community college campus is to be capable of allowing current students, staff, or faculty to declare an affirmed name, gender, or both name and gender identification. A community college campus cannot charge a higher fee for correcting, updating, or reissuing a document or record based on the declaration of an affirmed name or gender identification than any existing fee it charges for correcting, updating, or reissuing that document or general record.

(AB 2315 adds Section 66271.41 to the Education Code.)
