IMPLEMENTATION OF Assembly Bill 1899: Victims of Trafficking, Domestic Vio
lence and other Serious Crimes
AB 1899, chaptered in September of 2012, provides for a non-resident enrollment fee exemption forVictims of trafficking, domestic

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CALIFORNIA DOMESTIC PARTNER RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES ACT
The California Domestic Partner Rights and Responsibilities Act extends rights, benefits, responsibilities and obligations to individuals
in domestic partnerships registered with the California Secretary of State under Section 297 of the Family Code. If you are in a
Registered Domestic Partnership (RDP), or legal same sex marriage, you will be treated as an Independent married student to
determine Enrollment Fee Waiver eligibility and will need to provide income and household information for your domestic partner. If
you are a dependent student and your parent is in a Registered Domestic Partnership, or legal same sex marriage, you will be treated
the same as a student with married parents and income and household information will be required for the parent’s domestic partner.
Note: These provisions apply to state student financial aid ONLY, and not to federal student financial aid.
Are you or your parent in a Registered Domestic Partnership with the California Secretary of State under Section 297 of the Family
Code? (Answer “Yes” if you or your parent are separated from a Registered Domestic Partner but have NOT FILED a Notice of
Termination of Domestic Partnership with the California Secretary of State’s Office.)

your domestic partner’s income and household information or your parent’s domestic partner’s income and household
