Low-income community college students who attend school full time will become eligible for increased aid under the conference bill. Most of those students already pay no tuition and receive extra aid for books and living expenses. With a new $50 million in appropriations in the conference bill, the goal is to encourage more students to take at least 12 units a semester and complete their programs faster. For example, it calls for community college students who enroll in 15 units a term to be eligible for an additional $2,000 a year on top of other waivers and Cal Grants, according to the state Legislative Analyst’s Office.
