Hearings on the Tuition Relief Act

Seal of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives
The Pennsylvania Community College System is among the most expensive in the state, yet also one of the most accessible ways for adults to earn the additional education they need.

The Governor's budget proposes a new plan, The Tuition Relief Act, that would fund students attending state-run universities and community colleges, allowing them to earn the education they need without incurring unmanageable college debt.
