24 p. 

This report is an update, as of January 2001, of the status of California's state laws regarding mandatory and optional community college student fees. Key points include: (1) specific statutory authority is required to charge any fee that is required for registration, enrollment, entry into class, or completion of the required objectives of a course; (2) a basic enrollment fee is specifically authorized by statute, which was amended by Assembly Bill 1118 to reduce the fee to $11 per unit, effective fall 1999; (3) students who meet income standards under regulations of the Board of Governors, those who demonstrate financial need, and those who are recipients of benefits under certain state programs may be entitled to fee waivers--some special, part-time K-12 students may be exempt from paying fees as well; (4) Assembly Bill 3031 exempts students enrolled in specific credit contract education courses from fees if the cost of the course is being paid by the entity with which the district is contracting; (5) almost all noncredit courses are offered pursuant to sections 8531, 8532, 8533, and 8534 of the Education Code, and therefore districts have little authority to charge fees for these courses; and (6) Education Code section 76730 authorizes districts to charge students who audit courses a fee not to exceed $15 per unit per semester. Appended is an application of instructional materials regulations to specific instances. (NB)
