(a) The Regents of the University of California are urged to, and the Trustees of the California State University and the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges shall, perform the following functions:

(1) Annually direct each campus to disclose all exclusive arrangements, excluding proprietary information, with banks or other commercial entities to engage in on-campus marketing of credit cards to students through solicitation activities in public campus areas, hereafter referred to as "tabling" activities.

(2) Prohibit banks and other commercial entities, including their third-party representatives, during on-campus tabling activities from offering gifts to students for filling out student credit card applications. Banks and other commercial entities, including their third-party representatives, may rely on the self-identification of students for purposes of complying with this paragraph.

(b) The Regents of the University of California are urged to revise the University of California Policy on the On-Campus Marketing of Credit Cards to Students (July 28, 2004) by removing the exemptions in Section VIII of the policy as it relates to all future contractual agreements with any bank or other commercial entity that provides banking and other financial services to the campus community.
