Obama Plans to Make Community College FREE?!

Obama has the internet in a FRENZY after he announces his plan to make the first two years of community college FREE for all students who are "willing to work for it."

There aren't too many specific details for the plan just yet but he said he promises to share more details Friday during a speech at a community college in Knoxville, TN.

Here's what we know so far:

-The White House plans to vet and accredit qualified colleges.

-The plan is dependent upon federal funding which is projected to cover around 75% of the multi-billion dollar cost.

-Students will have to qualify for the program to receive the full ride.

-Students will have to maintain a 2.5 GPA and make steady progress to remain qualified.

"...what I'd like to do is to see the first two years of community college free for everybody who is willing to work for it. That's right, free for everyone who is willing to work for it. It's something we can accomplish and it's something that will train our workforce so that we can compete with anybody in the world."
-President Obama
This is sounding like an awesome plan so far. As of now it sounds like as long as you're willing to maintain a 2.5 GPA you can knock out two years of schooling for FREE!
I'll be tuned in tomorrow searching out more details for you guys! Stay tuned!!
