Community Colleges Tighten Requirements for Students Looking for Fee Waivers
Posted Tuesday, January 14th 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News - Tom Cutler

Community colleges are shifting into high gear and putting students in the driver's seat of their educational careers. 

The days of community colleges being the place to hang out, take a few classes and find yourself are slowly drawing to a close.

Starting in 2016 students who want to take classes, and need get their fees waived, will have to maintain a 2.0 or better GPA for two sessions.

The idea is to motivate students to not only to get a reduction in fees, but to get them moving, and keep them moving, on to higher education.

As traditional college tuition continues to rise, more students are using community colleges as a place to fulfill their requirements before transferring up to a four-year, and junior colleges are hard pressed for space.
