Removing Obstacles: A Toolkit for Implementing AB 789 Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements

Apr 30, 2024
FROM 1.00PM - 2.00PM

In 2023, JBAY, along with eight of California’s leading college affordability advocates, sponsored Assembly Bill (AB) 789, which was signed into law by Governor Newsom. AB 789 requires post-secondary institutions, as a condition of participation in the Cal Grant program, to adhere to a common set of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards, remove additional requirements that are more restrictive than those federally mandated, and ensure students have clear pathways to regain financial aid.

This webinar will support financial aid offices in implementing the AB 789 provisions, which must be adopted by the start of the 2024-25 academic year. Attendees will learn about the new AB 789 requirements, identify strategies to create student-friendly, equity-based SAP policies and appeals processes, and receive resources and tools to update their institutional policies and practices.
