Student Charges, Student Financial Aid, and Access to Postsecondary Education: A Continuing Dialogue. A Report to the Governor and the Legislature from Phase II of the Commission's Response to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 81. Commission Report No. 82-40.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
A supplement to a 1982 study on the impact of student charges on access to public postsecondary education in California is presented. The study was conducted by the California Postsecondary Education Commission at the request of the California Legislature. After considering the complex process of instituting new state policies for new conditions, attention is directed to four concerns: new state funding policies, appropriate relationships between individual and public support, distribution of student financial aid, and the use of student charge revenues. Four recommendations offered by the Commission regarding student charges are as follows: student charges should remain low; revenues from student charges should be available to the segments to maintain access and quality; graduate and professional students should assume moderately greater responsibility for their educations than undergraduate students; and financial incentives for public service should build on existing mechanisms. Eleven guidelines that guided the Commission in making recommendations to the legislature are included. In addition, all recommendations in the Commission's April 1982 report are listed, and their current status is summarized. The 1982 report is entitled "Student Charges, Student Financial Aid and Access to Postsecondary Education." (SW)
