California community college fee waivers will soon be set to a higher standard

California community college students receiving fee waivers will find a major change in 2016 when specific academic standards begin that tie academic performance with continued fee waiver eligibility. This week, the community college system Board of Governors approved a policy that places new standards on fee waivers, which basically eliminates the state’s most affordable higher education tuition, at $46 per credit.

The new change will require students to maintain a 2.0 GPA for two consecutive terms to remain eligible for continued fee waivers. In addition, students must complete at least half of the credits they attempt each semester. This is one of a wide array of changes the college system made in answer to recommendations by a state task force that the board approved in 2012.

In its effort to make needed changes, the colleges also plan to offer students more academic counseling and support. The system is dedicated to helping students better succeed at college. Community College system chancellor Brice W. Harris said in a written statement, “We will do everything in our power to help students on financial aid, but students need to know that they have a responsibility to keep up on their end of the bargain.”
