Message Regarding Court Ruling on AB 540
Chancellor Block's statement on AB 540, which will continue to ensure fair access.
I am encouraged that the court has upheld AB 540, ensuring that deserving California high school graduates continue to have fair access to the world-class education they have earned. UCLA’s AB 540 students are impressive young men and women, many of whom have overcome significant obstacles to excel academically and to demonstrate great promise as future leaders. We hope that, in the near future, these students are also eligible to receive the same consideration as their peers for federal, state and institutional financial aid.
