Should Community Colleges be able to offer 4-Year Baccalaureate Degrees?


House Approves Bill Allowing Arizona Community Colleges to Offer 4-Year Baccalaureate Degrees

The Arizona House of Representatives today approved HB 2523, bipartisan legislation sponsored by State Representative Becky Nutt (R-14) that allows community colleges to offer accredited four-year baccalaureate degrees.

"A strong community relies on its people and their ability to be successful," said Representative Nutt. "Education is vital to ensuring that people have the tools to meaningfully engage the workforce and give back to the communities in which they live. By allowing community colleges to offer four-year degrees, HB 2523 will help make college dramatically more accessible, more affordable, and result in more Arizonans achieving their educational goals."

HB 2523 is supported by the San Carlos Apache Tribe and cosponsored by Representatives Biasiucci (R-5), Bowers (R-25), Cobb (R-5), Grantham (R-12), Kavanagh (R-23), Shah (D-24), and Toma (R-22). The bill now moves to the State Senate for consideration.

Becky Nutt is a Republican member of the Arizona House of Representatives serving Legislative District 14, which includes areas of Greenlee, Graham, Cochise, and eastern Pima Counties.
