Legislators consider free college

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Paying for college can be expensive, especially when transferring to a four-year university after paying around $46 a unit at a community college and transitioning to paying close to $3,000 a semester for six or more units.

In an effort to help California community college students afford to transfer and graduate in four years, Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) has introduced Assembly Bill 1862, which offers free tuition to students who have obtained an associate degree for transfer and are transferring to a California state school.
