Controversial two-price system at Santa Monica College cancelled

Santa Monica College announced plans to cancel a new program that would have allowed students to pay higher costs to enroll in additional sections of overcrowded courses, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported.

The two-tiered pricing plan would have reflected the institution’s actual cost rather than state-subsidized rates and would run students $180 per unit instead of $46 for high-demand course such as English, math and history. The program, which would have been implemented this summer, has instead been postponed until more input is gathered, the Chronicle reported.
