Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that will make one year free for students at the state's 114 community colleges, so long as they are residents and new students who are enrolled full-time.

It follows similar legislation adopted in New York and Rhode Island this year.

California has one of the biggest community college systems in the country and it was already one of the most affordable. It currently charges residents just $46 per credit, or about $1,100 a year when enrolled full-time.
