California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Three background papers to a study on the impact of student charges on access to public postsecondary education in California are presented. The California Postsecondary Education Commission conducted the investigation at the request of the California Legislature. The first background paper examines the evolution since 1960 of policies regarding the use of student fee revenues along with the implementation of the California master plan for higher education. Attention is also directed to: the policies of California and other states regarding the uses of student fee revenues; and policies within the state, including a taxonomy of charges and their uses at California State University, University of California, and the California community colleges. The second paper discusses the structure of major federal, state, and institutional student aid programs, and traces the history of federal and state aid. Recent proposals to reduce the growth of federal financial aid programs and the implications for California student financial aid recipients are considered. The third paper describes a number of approaches to setting fees for graduate students, including borrowing by graduate students and the nature of their indebtedness in different academic and professional fields.
