SB1456 Student Success Act of 2012

SB 1456 is the first step to begin implementation of Student Success Task Force recommendations 2.2 (mandated services), 3.2 (BOG Fee Waiver conditions), and 8.2 (Student Support Initiative). This bill provides a policy framework that targets funding to the core matriculation services of orientation, assessment, counseling and advising, and development of education plans.  The bill re-names the Matriculation program as the Student Success and Support Program.

The Chancellor's Office plans to convene five primary adhoc workgroups, comprised of key system stakeholders, to develop proposals and implement the provisions of SB 1456. Information about implementation of the bill will be posted on this website.
