Homeless Youth Success in Higher Education

Homeless Youth Success in Higher Education

Homeless Youth Success in Higher Education Act: AB 801 (Bloom)


AB 801 will help homeless youth* attempting to navigate the college admission processes. The bill will allow homeless youth to receive some of the same services and exemptions that are available to foster youth and former foster youth, such as priority enrollment and fee waivers with the goal of helping reduce barriers to college attendance due to lack of financial support and resources.

AB 801 qualifies homeless youth to receive the same priority enrollment given to foster youth and former foster youth at Cosumnes River College and state universities and community colleges within California.

*“Homeless youth” means a student under 25 years of age, who has been verified at any time during the 24 months immediately preceding the receipt of his or her application for admission.

*“Foster youth and former foster youth” means a person in California whose dependency was established or continued by the court on or after the youth’s 16th birthday and who is no older than 25 years of age at the commencement of the academic year
