S.F. College May Tie Free Tuition to GradesApril 21, 2017 |
by Michael Barba
San Francisco is on the cusp of finalizing an agreement to make tuition free at City College of San Francisco, but at least one sticking point remains over whether students have to meet certain academic requirements to be eligible.
As cities across the nation discuss free higher education, the efforts are not as simple or all encompassing as they might first seem. In New York, students receiving free tuition will have to live and work in the state after graduation. In San Francisco, undocumented immigrants will need to establish California residency before attending for free.
