The California Community Colleges’ Board of Governors on Monday voted to approve a set of minimum academic standards that students will have to meet in order to receive a fee waiver. The fees are currently $46 per unit, and about 40 percent of the state’s 2.6 million community-college students have them waived.
The new policy will require students to maintain at least a 2.0 grade-point average for two consecutive terms, and to complete at least half of their units with a grade of D or higher. The new rules will take effect in 2016.
