Program Eligibility

Both female and male students age 18 and younger who have not graduated from high school may voluntarily enroll in the Cal-SAFE Program if they are expectant parents, custodial parents, or parents taking an active role in the care and supervision of their child. An eligible student with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is eligible as long as their IEP remains active. If a student is continuously enrolled in the Cal-SAFE program and has not graduated before reaching age 19, the student may be enrolled for one additional semester beyond the 19th birthday. As long as teen parents are enrolled in the Cal-SAFE Program, their children are eligible for services until age five or entry into kindergarten, whichever comes first.
