SMC proposing to curb registration woes at community colleges by offering courses for $180/credit hour vs the current $36. This will aloow those students who are willing to pay more get the classes they would need to transfer. SMC says the $180/ crt hr fee is just enough to keep those classes open.

Critics are saying it will pave the way for other CCs to raise tuition as well and create a class system of students where only middle to high income students will be able to further their education at a faster pace.

The proposal can be rejected by the Community Colleges Governing Board.
