A withering state audit published Tuesday recommended Calbright College close if the tuition-free online school can’t improve a slew of problems by the end of next year. The auditor found that Calbright, which offers nondegree programs, has inadequate support services, lacks a process for helping students land “well-paying” jobs and has made little progress setting up the fledgling college. Support from California’s governor narrowly saved Calbright from the chopping block last year, but some influential lawmakers and faculty groups have opposed the college from its inception.
