Students Taking Longer to Earn Degrees from Community Colleges In the 1960s, California made a pledge to its young people: if you wanted a college education, you could get one, starting with Community College. Today the state’s 112 Community Colleges, with 2.1 million students, makes up the largest higher education system in the county. But that half-century long promise is in trouble. A new report finds students are taking longer to get both their Associate and Bachelor’s degrees, and that means college is getting more expensive.
