Promise of the University of the United States: The democratic-backed plan to provide enrollment for all community college students, could allow more than nine million students to continue with an associate degree for free. p>

Twenty-one states have average tuition figures on top of the national median, which means that those states must pay until that difference reaches zero dollars. Up to 12 states should increase funding by more than 15 percent before academic year 2023-24 to be eligible, and seven states should increase their financing by more than 25 percent.

The states are probably divided into three categories, said Will Doyle, Professor of Public Policy and Higher Education at the University of Vanderbilt. The first is composed of states with already low enrollment, such as California, where the potential benefit of the promise plan of the University will probably exceed any additional cost to participate. The second group includes states that will have to find some more funds, but not a substantial amount, Doyle said. Georgia falls into this category. The third group includes States that have a significantly lower investment in higher education and that would dramatically increase their spending on community colleges to be eligible for the Promise Program of the University.

"I hope that most states in the first category participate, while some, but not all states in the central category will participate, and that very few if any of the states in the last category will participate "Doyle wrote in an email. "It is difficult to see how states could increase funds for community college students by 25 percent, even though many of them should." P>
