CA AB 3290

Title: Public postsecondary education: tuition and fees: members of the Armed Services.
Author: House Higher Education Committee

Summary
AB 3290, as introduced, Committee on Higher Education. Public postsecondary education: tuition and fees: members of the Armed Services. Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, the California State University, under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, and the University of California, under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, as the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in the state.Existing law establishes uniform residency requirements for purposes of ascertaining the amount of tuition and fees to be paid by students of public postsecondary education institutions. Existing law entitles a student to resident classification only for the purpose of determining tuition and fees if the student is a member of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed in the state, except a member of the Armed Forces that is assigned for educational purposes to a state-supported institution of higher education.This bill would delete that exception from resident classification, thereby extending resident classification to any student who is a member of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed in the state, regardless of whether the student is assigned for educational purposes to a state-supported institution of higher education. To the extent the bill would require community college districts to exempt more students from nonresident tuition, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
