Background Papers on Student Charges, Student Financial Aid, and Access to Postsecondary Education: Options for the California Community Colleges. A Supplement to the Report from Phase III of the Commission's Response to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 81.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Designed to provide a technical context for discussions of student charges, student financial aid, and educational access in California's community colleges, this report presents three papers clarifying options related to student fees and financial aid. The first paper considers three questions related to charges in the California community colleges: (1) Who should be charged? (2) How should charges be structured? and (3) How should the level of charges be determined? For each question, a number of possible options and alternative structures are discussed. The second paper examines existing financial aid programs that may be necessary, given the imposition of a general student charge in the California community colleges. The final paper reviews policies and structures for student charges and student financial aid in community colleges in six states, and discusses differences among the states as they relate to possible options for California. The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges' statement on contingency fees and the California Community Colleges Resolution on Matriculated Students are appended. (LAL)
