California, Community Colleges, and Tuition

I have friends at California community colleges that have had their (the colleges) summer offerings canceled because they lose money running the classes. The low tuition really is unsustainable and if they're losing students to non-profits, that's a real problem! If your college has a strong slate of online offerings this summer, you should be marketing in California.

Low tuition, long wait lists

California’s community colleges charge the lowest tuition in the nation, but can’t afford to provide enough classes for students. The Legislature may let colleges charge more for some classes. Why not let colleges charge a sustainable tuition for all classes? Students are willing to pay more: They’re turning to the much costlier for-profit sector, which has no wait lists.
