SUMMARY : Encourages a California Community College (CCC) to
increase their acceptance of credits earned at another CCC
toward an associate degrees for transfer, established under the
Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (STAR program).

EXISTING LAW establishes, under SB 1440 (Padilla), Chapter 428,
Statutes of 2010, the STAR program, requiring CCC districts to
grant an associate degree that deems the student eligible for
transfer into the California State University (CSU), subject to
specified requirements, and requires the CSU to guarantee
admission with junior status to CCC students meeting those
requirements.

FISCAL EFFECT : According to Assembly Appropriations Committee,
likely negligible fiscal impact.

COMMENTS : According to the author, SB 1440 intended for CCC
campuses and districts to provide reciprocity in the acceptance
of credits. The author believes this bill is necessary to
ensure compliance with this Legislative intent.
