Solano Community College students who earn an associate degree would get two years of tuition paid for at a California State University if legislation authored by Los Angeles Assemblyman Miguel Santiago 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,” Santiago said in a statement after a press conference held this week to announce Assembly Bill 1862.
“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 within reach for California students and their families,” Santiago said in the statement.
