Funding: California Dual Enrollment Legislation
Senate Bill 292 (1996): School districts can claim full ADA for dually enrolled students
as long as they are enrolled in and attend high school for 240 minutes a day. They
can claim three-quarters ADA for dually enrolled 11th- and 12th-grade students who
attend high school for 180 minutes or the appropriate percentage of ADA for the
number of minutes between 240 and 180, inclusive.
Senate Bill 338 (2003): The governing board of a school district may determine which
students might benefit from “advanced scholastic or vocational work”. To
participate, students must obtain principal’s recommendation and parental
consent. Community colleges may restrict admission base on age, grade level or
multiple assessments. In order for a college to claim full-time equivalent status,
the class must be open and advertised to the general public. Summer dual
enrollment is limited to 5 percent of each grade at any high school.
Senate Bill 70 (2005): Funding is provided to improve workforce development efforts
by strengthening career and technical education pathways between high schools
and community colleges.
Senate Bill 1303 (2006): Students enrolled in lower division transfer courses, forcredit occupational courses and California High School Exit Exam preparatory
courses are exempt from the 5 percent summer session cap.
CA ED CODE: 76300 (f) The governing board of a community college district may
exempt special part-time students admitted, pursuant to Section 76001, from the
fee requirement.

following institutions, the group (students and/or families) would
save approximately the following amount of college costs:
•
•
•
•
CCC = 1.5 million dollars
CSU = 2 million dollars
