Free College

In support of the focus on Equity, Social Justice, and Completion, a strategic initiative of the District over the life of this Strategic Plan is to make Free Community College in the SMCCCD a reality. Some of the key components that combine to make Free Community College a possibility for San Mateo County include the accelerated expansion of Dual Enrollment, the Promise Scholars Program (PSP), and Open Educational Resources (OER) for Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) degree programs, all within a Guided Pathways framework.
