Priority Enrollment Plan Adopted for California 2-Year Colleges
- Calif. community colleges pick a new chancellor
- California community college task force pushes big changes
- San Francisco isn't only Calif. community college in accreditation meltdown

- California's two-year colleges roll out transfer degrees while lawmakers consider nudge
The governing board for California's 112 community colleges on Monday approved a policy of systemwide priority enrollment for students who have an educational plan in place and are working toward a credential or toward transferring. The proposal, which marks a substantial shift for a system with history of open access, was one of a set of recommendations last year by a state task force. The priority enrollment plan, while controversial, has also been praised for being a completion-oriented means of coping with deep budget cuts.
