Rhode Island is offering free community college to some qualified students. On Thursday, lawmakers approved a new state budget that makes community college tuition-free for recent high school graduates who enroll full-time, maintain at least a 2.5 grade-point average and stay in Rhode Island for two years after graduation.

Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo continues to push her ambitious plan to make community college tuition-free, even after state lawmakers scaled it back.
