AB 2747 – Amends Existing Law To Provide Team USA Student Athletes Training In An Elite Level Program With Resident Classification For Tuition And Fees If They Provide The Required Documentation To The California Community College, California State University, Or University Of California Campus They Are Attending
Existing law entitles an amateur student-athlete in training at the United States Olympic Training Center in the City of Chula Vista to resident classification for the purpose of determining tuition and fees. These provisions apply to the University of California only to the extent that the regents, by appropriate resolution, make them applicable.
This bill amends existing law to provide that any Team USA student-athlete who trains in an elite-level program approved by the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee is entitled to resident classification for tuition and fee purposes until the athlete has resided in the state the minimum time necessary to become a resident. The bill requires the student-athlete to certify their participating in an Olympic or Paralympic elite-level training program and provide supporting documentation from the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee verifying eligibility, to the campus they are attending of the California Community Colleges, California State University, or the University of California. This section of the bill shall be effective until July 1, 2032.
Effective July 1, 2032, the bill provides that any amateur student-athlete in training at the United States Olympic Training Center in the City of Chula Vista is entitled to resident classification for tuition purposes until the student-athlete has resided in the state the minimum time necessary to become a resident.
