Cutbacks could raise units $10

Because of the austerity measures hatched by Gov. Jerry Brown in an attempt to bring California back from the brink of debt, community colleges may have to turn away about 350,000 students next year.

The community college system would lose about $400 million more in funding under this plan.

To make ends meet, colleges would have to increase tuition by $10 per unit, said Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott.
