California makes the first year of community college free

Recommended Posts

And Just who is paying for that free College Jerry? Oh yes, that would be the California Tax payers.  No wonder people are leaving the state in record numbers. Free, Free, Free, ..nothing in life is free. Someone always has to pay!

 

The first year of community college will be free for thousands of California students under a bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

The signing announced Friday creates the “California College Promise” program.

It waives course fees for a student’s first year of classes. Students must apply for the fee waiver and take at least 12 credits per semester.

Each unit now costs $46.

The community college system estimates 19,000 students would be eligible for the fee waiver, which will cost the state about $31 million annually.

Roughly 1.6 million of the system’s 2.3 million students already receive other financial aid.
