Thousands of California residents can now attend two years of community college for free, thanks to a new program being promoted by Governor Gavin Newsom.

This year's state budget includes more than $42 million to expand the California College Promise program.

It will provide two years of free tuition to first-time students who attend community colleges on a full-time basis.

California's community colleges are the country's largest system of higher education.
