Biden noted that a high school diploma is no longer sufficient for the professional requirements of the 21st century.

“This is why, under the Biden-Harris Plan, community colleges will be free, and state colleges and universities will be free for families earning less than $ 125 a year,” he wrote on Twitter.

As the site clarifies College ExpressState colleges (universities) usually offer undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs. Community College offers two years of study - courses that you can use to complete your general education. After that, you can continue your studies at a university or state college to get a bachelor's degree.

Biden's allies in Congress have pushed for such action by the new administration for some time.

Biden's Twitter announcement echoed promises listed on his campaign website that said "investing [in] community colleges and training to improve student achievement" for the benefit of the middle class.
