AB 2416 Implementation
Every year, thousands of students in California’s colleges and universities lose access to financial aid because they fall below certain academic standards known as Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Most colleges do offer the opportunity to appeal the loss of financial aid due to SAP, but appeals processes vary tremendously by campus. Assembly Bill 2416 requires colleges to consider homelessness as an extenuating circumstance when evaluating appeals for the loss of financial aid. AB 2416 will make it easier for college students who have experienced homelessness to remain enrolled and have access to higher education.
