California Community Colleges to Create Statewide​, Online-Only College

November 15, 2017

According to a report in Inside Higher Ed, 2.5 million Californians have attended college but don’t have a degree -- a problem the state’s two-year system is trying to help solve with a new statewide, online-only college.

The proposed online college would not seek to compete with the system’s 114 brick-and-mortar community college campuses or their online offerings, officials said, but instead would be an option for people who can’t go to the traditional campuses or didn’t transition to college in a typical way. The plan, dubbed Project FLOW (Flex Learning Options for Workers), includes a focus on work-force credentials and nondegree certifications.

This week the system will submit three options for the online-only college to its Board of Governors. To read the rest of this story, click here.
