AB 3137 – Extends California College Promise For Members Of The Armed Forces

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Nov 12, 2020

Existing law establishes the California College Promise, which authorizes a community college to use the funding to waive some or all of the fees for certain first-time students at the college for two academic years.

This law allows a student who is a member of the armed forces that is called to duty to withdraw from participation in the California College Promise and resume participation in the program upon the student’s return without losing eligibility for the fee waiver. The time during which the student was obliged to withdraw because of active duty shall not count toward the two-year limit.

(AB 3137 amends Section 76396.3 of the Education Code.)
