Modesto Junior College

Assembly Bill 19

AB 19 California College Promise

There has been misinformation disseminated about this bill. Please read for a current accurate update.

AB19 was approved by the governor on October 13, 2017, but has not been funded. Unless and until it is actually funded by the California Dept of Finance it won’t be implemented.  You may read the full text of the bill here

If funded and implemented, AB19 would first take effect Fall 2018 for the 2018-2019 academic school year.   

However, even if the bill IS funded, there is not a mandate that the college must use these funds to provide fee waivers to all first time full time students; the bill allows for each college to determine how to use the funds.  A college may choose to use the funds in other ways that directly support our students while meeting the intent of the legislation. How our college will ultimately decide to utilize the funds, should they be approved, is an administrative decision that will be made 1) once the bill is actually funded and 2) once we are provided additional guidance from our State Chancellor’s Office. As yet there is no guidance and probably won’t be until the bill is actually funded.

Our best advice for our currently attending students is to be sure to file a 2018-2019 FAFSA application ( or the CADAA if you have not done so already, because you may qualify for a fee waiver for the current school year, in addition to other sources of financial aid. If your FAFSA or CADAA indicates you have sufficient unmet financial need and you are a California resident or you are undocumented with AB540 residency status, you will automatically be provided a fee waiver under the existing fee waiver program!
