LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1674, as amended, Grayson. University of California: nonresident student enrollment.
Existing law expresses the intent of the Legislature that the University of California establish nonresident student tuition policies that are consistent with their resident student fee policies. The provisions are applicable to the University of California only if the Regents of the University of California act, by resolution, to make them applicable.
This bill would require request the University of California, in collaboration with the Academic Senate of the University of California, as a condition of receipt of funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act, to ensure that implementation of any admissions policy regarding admission of nonresident undergraduate students includes guidance that ensures the academic qualifications for admitted nonresident undergraduate students generally exceeds the academic qualifications of resident undergraduate students, and would require request the University of California to report specified information to the Legislature annually regarding implementation of the policy.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 68052.1 is added to the Education Code, to read:

68052.1.
 As a condition of receipt of funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act, and notwithstanding Section 68134, the The University of California shall is requested to comply with both of the following:
(a) By July 1, 2018, the University of California, in collaboration with the Academic Senate of the University of California, shall is requested to ensure that implementation of any admissions policy it adopts regarding admission of nonresident undergraduate students shall include guidance that ensures that the academic qualifications for admitted nonresident undergraduate students generally exceeds, on average, the academic qualifications of resident undergraduate students admitted at each campus.
(b) The University of California shall is requested to report to the Legislature annually regarding implementation of this policy, including, but not limited to, the mean and median scores on academic indicators of admitted resident and nonresident undergraduate students at each campus.
