California will provide first-time, full-time students with two years of free tuition to community colleges in the state.
The effort is being rolled out under the state‚Äôs California College Promise program, which already provided California students with one free year of tuition at community colleges.
‚ÄúThis is real help for students trying to improve their lives and build their future,‚ÄĚ California Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement this week. ‚ÄúNo one can argue with the fact that the full cost of attending institutions of higher learning is still far too high ‚Äď both in California and across the country.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúBut by offering two years of community college tuition-free, California is taking a meaningful step toward chipping away at the cost of higher learning for students and their families,‚ÄĚ he continued.View Article
