Colorado Youth Advisory Council Review Committee. The bill
requires all public higher education institutions (institutions) in Colorado
to waive undergraduate tuition and fees for Colorado resident students
who have been in foster care or, following an adjudication as neglected
or dependent, in noncertified kinship care in Colorado at any time on or
after reaching the age of 13 (qualifying students). The institutions are

required to designate an employee to serve as a liaison to qualifying or
prospective qualifying students.
Under existing law, school districts and the state charter school
institute must designate an employee to act as the child welfare education
liaison. The bill requires child welfare education liaisons to provide
students in out-of-home placement with information and assistance
regarding the tuition waiver for qualifying students.
