Calbright College, the first online Community College in California, registered 904 students since it was inaugurated in October 2019, but only 12 students graduated in their first year, according to a highly critical state audit launched on Tuesday. The report found that most students abandoned or stopped progressing on their programs since the university was launched.

State legislators and faculty groups say that college is a failure and is asking for closure. Calbright administrators agree with the evaluation of the audit, but insist that the university can change for better.

"We recognize and agree with a series of recommendations that was made by the auditor," said Ajita Talwalker Menon, president and CEO of College de Calbright. "In many cases, we are already taking many of the steps that are necessary to respond to these recommendations on the timeline that the auditor suggested."
