TICAS Letter of Support for California AB 789

In a letter to the California Assembly on Higher Education Committee, TICAS expressed its strong support for AB 789 (Berman). AB 789 would enable students who struggle academically — due to personal hardships — to continue their education by removing barriers to maintaining financial aid and benefiting from institutional support. These changes are critical for students given the enormous impact financial aid reception has on college enrollment and retention – especially for students from low-income backgrounds and BIPOC students.
