BILL NUMBER: S1822

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the education law, in relation to including senior
citizen students auditing community college classes in the full time
equivalent state aid formula


PURPOSE :
This bill would give funding to community colleges that have senior
citizens auditing classes.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Subdivision 5 of section 6303 of the education law is amended to
include senior citizen students who are auditing classes in the full
time equivalent state aid formula.

JUSTIFICATION :
Community colleges are required to permit senior citizens to audit
classes if there is space available. Although seniors do not receive
credit towards a degree, it is still a great learning opportunity.

The classroom interaction between college students fresh out of high
school and senior citizen auditors adds a real world atmosphere that
benefits everyone involved. In addition, the opportunity for seniors
to continue learning helps maintain their independence and improve
their quality of life.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

2007-08: S.5649/Referred to Aging

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect the first of July next succeeding the date
on which it shall have become a law.
