Most California for-profit colleges lose state grants (List included)

"California's move to tighten eligibility requirements for its Cal Grant program will eliminate or reduce awards to 14,500 students, most of them enrolled in for-profit colleges such as the University of Phoenix, the California Student Aid Commission announced Tuesday.
The commission released a list of colleges that are no longer eligible to receive Cal Grants under tougher standards passed by the Legislature and signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in June. The rules were adopted to save an estimated $55 million and address the state's budget deficit.

California's public universities and most nonprofit, private colleges met the new standards for graduation rates and student loan defaults.

Of the 170 for-profit schools that participate in the state financial aid program, 137, or 80 percent, could not meet them. They include the University of Phoenix, ITT Technical Institute, Kaplan College, Heald College and others.

Worth mentioning, Academy of Art university was among the schools that lost grant eligibility. A pity for the significant number of talented, dedicated artists studying or teaching there, but a predictable result of the school's rather dubious admissions and recruitment policies.

It is useful to remember that there are many good state schools, including community colleges in CA that teach animation. I am very proud that I teach at a 2 year community college and have many graduates in the industry or pursuing 4 year degrees (or more) at various state universities. Community colleges have been hit hard by the state budget cutbacks, but it is still a cheap and very hands-on way to learn animation.
