Current law does not prevent a higher education institution (institution) from considering legacy preferences and familial relationships to alumni of the institution as eligible criteria for admissions standards. The bill prohibits a governing board of a state-supported higher education institution (governing board) from considering legacy preferences and familial relationships to alumni of the institution in the admissions process. The bill allows a governing board to ask questions regarding familial relationships to alumni of the institution in order to collect data.(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
