Assembly Bill 255 – Requires California State Universities That Provide A Priority Enrollment/Registration System To Specified First Responders Starting In Academic Year 2025-2026
AB 255 requires that the California State University that administer a priority enrollment system provide priority registration for enrollment to first responders starting academic year 2025-2026. The bill also requests, but does not require, that the University of California provide the same priority.
This bill provides priority registration to first responders after verifying the student’s employment as a first responder. For purposes of this bill, “first responders” includes: peace officer, firefighter (with some exceptions), paramedic, an emergency medical technician, and public safety dispatcher or public safety telecommunicator.
(AB 255 adds Section 66025.82 to the Education Code.)
