SACRAMENTO — It wouldn’t be “free college” for all — no one anywhere is proposing that — but a state university diploma could become more affordable for many California students.

Under a new law, full-time community college students are already excused from paying course fees of $46 per unit. That’s good for both their freshman and sophomore years. The next logical step is for those students to receive two more years of tuition-free education if they transfer to a California state university.

LOS ANGELES - In a new bill (AB 1862) introduced on Wednesday by Assembly Member Miguel Santiago and members of the Los Angeles Community College District Board, college students will get two years of tuition-free education at any California State university if it passes and becomes law.

'The cost of a bachelor’s degree is just too damn high. Our students deserve the chance to earn a degree without being burdened by overwhelming debt. Providing two years of tuition-free CSU means students will save tens of thousands of dollars while earning their bachelor’s degree. AB 1862 puts that dream with in reach for California students and their families,' Assemblymember Santiago said in a statement.

Students who obtain an associate’s degree for a transfer under the California College Promise program could complete their bachelor’s degree for free at California State University under legislation, drafted by Los Angeles editor Miguel Santiago.
