Student Parent Resources

Effective July 1, 2023 California has enacted a new law (AB 2881) to support parenting college students! California now becomes the first state to require educational institutions to provide priority registration for college student parents! Roughly 1 in 5 college students is a student parent, so VVC welcomes this change and the opportunity to support our parenting college students. AB 2881 requires colleges and universities in California to provide priority registration for student parents (as of 7/1/2023), and to notify them of resources and supports critical to their success.
