SB 1299 – Increases The Fee The Regents Of University Of California May Charge To Process An Application And Tuition For The California State Summer School Program For Mathematics And Science And Limits Admission To California Residents
The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science provides academic development to enable pupils, including pupils who are not California residents, with demonstrated academic excellence in mathematics and science who meet one of 3 specified enrollment criteria to receive intensive educational enrichment in these subjects and to provide an opportunity for pupils who wish to study mathematics or science or to pursue careers that require a high degree of skills in and knowledge of mathematics and science. Existing law requests the Regents of the University of California to operate the summer school. Existing law states the Legislature’s intent is for the Regents of the University of California to adopt policies that will enable pupils who are not California residents, including residents of other countries, to be admitted to the summer school.
SB 1299 amends existing law by limiting the eligibility criteria to certain pupils from a California school. The bill deletes provisions related to the admission of pupils who are not California residents to summer school.
Existing law, until January 1, 2023, requests the regents to develop and implement a statewide application procedure for the summer school. Current law requires that the cost of the application process be at least partially offset by charging each applicant a fee not to exceed $30. Existing law, until January 1, 2023, requests the regents to set a tuition fee within a range that corresponds to actual program costs, up to but not exceeding $2,810 per session in 2012, and to increase this fee by an amount of up to 5% each year thereafter.
This bill instead sets the application fee at $40 in 2023 and authorizes this fee to be increased by an amount of up to 5% each year thereafter. The bill also requests that the regents set a tuition fee for the summer school within a range that corresponds to actual program costs, up to but not exceeding $4,770 per session in 2023, and allows for an increase in an amount of up to 5% each year thereafter.
The bill would remain in effect until January 1, 2028.
(SB amends Sections 8662, 8664, 8669, and 8669.1 of, and repeals Section 8663 of, the Education Code.)
