Beyond Tuition: A New Vision for Higher Education

CAP proposes Beyond Tuition, a new plan to ensure all Americans have the opportunity to earn a college degree.

To get ahead in today’s America, it’s becoming increasingly important to have a college degree. But for many Americans, access to college is out of reach. The Center for American Progress is proposing Beyond Tuition, a bold new plan that provides free college to every low-income student in America, regardless of age. And it provides an affordable education to all Americans. Watch our video to learn more.
