Governor Ducey signed a bill into law today that will allow community colleges to offer four-year degrees. Ducey says “this is “Opportunity for All” in action. It will allow students even more opportunities as they strengthen their education and expand their employment opportunities.” Yavapai College President Dr. Lisa Rhine says “allowing community colleges, like Yavapai College, to offer four-year degrees will save students money, draw more students to our school and build up our workforce. “ Under the legislation, community colleges opting to offer baccalaureate degrees must approve each program based on specific criteria, including workforce need, a financial and administrative analysis of the feasibility of offering the program, and mitigating duplication.
