Whereas, Restrictive and inadequate funding from the state and enrollments caps have forced colleges to seek alternate sources of revenue;

Whereas, Out-of-state and international students pay higher fees that potentially represent additional revenue to cash-strapped colleges and in many colleges are guaranteed enrollment in 12 units; and

Whereas, Many colleges guarantee enrollment in12 units and give enrollment priority to out of state and international students, thereby depriving resident students of access to their local community college;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges conduct a short turn-around survey regarding the impact of priority registration for out-of-state and international students on access for resident students;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges prepare a Rostrum article including suggestions for integrating out-of-state and international student programs into colleges and districts in ways that provide documented benefits to all students; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge colleges to identify local priorities regarding enrollment of non-resident students, taking into consideration the effects on instruction, services, and resources needed to educate resident students.

Status Report: 

I think the survey may have happened. I am not sure the Rostrum article did--I can't find one. But to be honest, while I recall us discussing this, I am not sure much happened at all.
