New Community College Enrollment Rules Put Some Students at Head of Line

(Sacramento, CA)
Monday, September 10, 2012

The statewide system's Board of Governors approved a new policy Monday that puts long-time students and those on academic probation at the end of the line.

California Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott says the system has suffered years of budget cuts - leading to fewer available classes.  He says students working towards degrees, transfers and career technical programs should take priority over everyone else.

Scott: "If there's room in the class, that's fine.  But if you've been there and you're just a professional student and you've accumulated more than 100 units, you really ought not to be crowding out the individual who's coming to transfer or in order to get a career technical certificate."

The new enrollment rules take effect in Fall 2014 - though individual campuses can put them in place earlier if they want.
