Whereas, Students redirected from the University of California and California State University will already pay lower fees than they would at the redirecting institution;
Whereas, Waiving fees could increase a tendency to displace traditional community college students in favor of non-paying, redirected students;
Whereas, The state is considering raising fees again to defray some costs of education at community colleges; and
Whereas, Waiving fees for only redirected students violates principles of equity among students;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges oppose waiving community college fees as proposed in the Governor's January 2004 budget proposal for students redirected to community colleges from the University of California and California State University.
