Resolution Number
Evelyn "Sam" Weiss
Assigned to

Whereas all community college students currently pay an enrollment fee of $6 per unit up to $60 a semester, and

Whereas proposed legislation would limit enrollment of some students by requiring those with a large number of units or a Bachelor's degree to pay differential fees, and

Whereas many students return to community colleges for retraining, upgrading of skills and continuing education needed to obtain or maintain employment, and

Whereas a well educated work force is necessary for the economic growth and stability of California, and

Whereas many districts are establishing priorities for registration of students, and

Whereas the Board of Governors has established the Commission on Innovation to make recommendation on the optimal use of community college resources, and

Whereas the effects of implementation of charging the full cost of instruction has not been assessed,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges oppose the principle of imposing higher fees for any students before the full implications of such actions are understood and discussed.
