Free Community College? Congress Thinking About It – ICTMN.comOct 6th, 2015 | By tcj | Category: Tribal College News Roundup
Congress has taken up President Barack Obama’s call to make community college free and available to everyone by introducing legislation that would have the federal government pay 75 percent of tuition and fees for most students and 95 percent for most American Indian/Alaska Native students at tribal colleges. The rest of the tab would be picked up by states or tribes.
This initiative is supported by tribal college and university leaders and by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.
