Guardian Statement for International Application:

The Community Colleges of Ventura County require that students who are under the age of 18 have a guardian over the age of 21 living in Ventura County. In the event of a personal emergency, accident, illness or incarceration, the State of California will require the signature of a guardian before offering assistance such as hospitalization or legal counsel. The Community Colleges of Ventura County are not permitted to act in place of the parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 18, you are required to have your parent submit a signed statement informing the Community Colleges of Ventura County who will be assigned as your guardian. The statement must include the name, address, telephone number and age of the guardian.

Guardian must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be over 25 years old.
  • Must be a U.S. Citizen, a legal resident alien, or possess an active U.S. visa.
  • Must be granted Power of Attorney for medical and other services.
  • Must be available by phone and email for immediate contact in case of medical or physical emergency.
