California will launch a new community college completely online next year, under a $100 million initiative included in Gov. Jerry Brown’s latest budget proposal.
The online college will target working adults without a higher education degree, offering short courses and certificate programs based on skills that employers are looking for and students need for career advancement. In his budget press conference Wednesday, Brown called it an “opportunity to improve their lives.”
