This bill provides for the establishment by the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority of a State tuition aid grant pilot program for part-time students enrolled at a county college. Under the pilot program, a State tuition aid grant would be awarded annually to each eligible, qualified part-time student enrolled at a county college. A student would be required to apply for all other forms of federal student assistance grants and scholarships prior to receipt of a tuition aid grant under the program. Student eligibility for a tuition aid grant would be determined by the authority according to the criteria established in the current law which provides tuition aid grants to full-time students, other than the criterion for full-time enrollment. Within the limits of available appropriations as determined by the authority, part-time grant awards would be pro-rated against the full-time grant award for the applicable institutional sector as follows: an eligible student enrolled with six to eight credits would receive one-half of the value of a full-time award; and an eligible student enrolled with nine to eleven credits would receive three-quarters of the full-time award. Each program category of part-time tuition aid grants would be separately made by line item. Three years following the establishment of the program, the authority would be required to submit a report to the Governor and the Legislature. The report would include a recommendation on the establishment of a permanent part-time tuition aid grant program, the funding level for the program and sources of funding.
