Second Chances for College Applicants Accepted

Apr 8, 2019 by AFP

DENVER, Colo. – Americans for Prosperity-Colorado (AFP-CO) applauded the Colorado Senate for unanimously passing SB19-170, legislation that will prohibit public colleges and universities from asking about applicants’ criminal history for most charges or K-12 disciplinary records during the initial application process.

“Colorado is one step closer to a higher education system that welcomes every individual who wants to improve their life,” said Jesse Mallory, AFP-CO State Director. “Rejecting someone for a mistake they made on their worst day is an unjust barrier that discourages folks who are ready to put their past behind them and work to achieve their potential. We applaud the Senate for passing this bill and encourage the House to follow suit.”
