R.I. students to get free tuition for 2 years at state colleges, under Raimondo budget + poll

“All Rhode Island students in good academic standing would qualify for two years of free tuition at any of the state’s public colleges under a plan Gov. Gina Raimondo will present this week to the General Assembly as part of her fiscal 2018 budget.

Although a handful of other states, including Tennessee and Oregon, offer their resident students free tuition at certain of their colleges – community and technology schools, for example – Raimondo’s plan would be among the first in the nation to provide free tuition to students attending any of its public colleges, regardless of family income. Georgia has had a similar program for several years and New York is considering one.”
