Entire region benefits from Good Neighbor Policy
Feather River College
For over two decades, residents of Plumas County and other border communities relied upon the Good Neighbor Policy for a reciprocal reduced tuition agreement between California and Nevada colleges. This existing arrangement was voided in 2012 when Nevada officials no longer permitted reduced tuition for California residents, thereby canceling the reciprocity language that is required in California statute. As a result, residents from both border communities were forced to pay full out-of-state tuition even though they lived a few miles from the state line.
