Tuition-Free Community College

Tuition-Free Community College

The Act will effectively make tuition free for all high school graduates who go to a two-year college.  Participating students will have to maintain a 2.0 grade point average, attend mandatory meetings, work with a mentor, and perform community service.  The program, expected to cost $34 million per year, will be paid for using $300 million in excess lottery reserve funds and by creating a $47 million endowment.
