Assembly Bill 634 – Expands State Funding Eligibility For Non-Credit Career Development And College Preparation Courses

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Dec 06, 2023

Existing law provides that non-credit career development and college preparation courses offered at community colleges are eligible for state funding under the following circumstances: if they are offered in a sequence leading to a certificate of completion for improved employability or job placement opportunities, or for a certificate of completion as specified, completion of an associate of arts degree, or for transfer level course work (educational outcomes).

AB 634 amends existing law to provide funding eligibility for non-credit courses that are offered in both face-to-face and distance education instructional methods and eliminates the requirement that the courses be offered in a sequence of courses.  The statute now allows students to take courses in a program simultaneously, rather than in a sequence.  The courses must still meet the existing educational outcomes.

(AB 634 amends Section 84760.5 of the Education Code.)
