President Obama announced a plan to make community college free for students for their first 2 years. Under this new proposal, students would be able to earn the first half of a bachelor’s degree or technical skills at no cost to them. We are very excited about this proposal, as it would remove one of the major barriers to college completion – financial need. We also understand that getting students in is only the first step so we look forward to working with the President and others in the field to ensure that the access we grant by alleviating students’ financial burden translates to success – students actually earning a degree or certificate.
