Long Beach City College experiments with tiered pricing
Every semester since 2009, Sequoyah Hilt has tried to sign up for a phlebotomy course at Long Beach City College. She never got a seat. Then Hilt heard that the school had openings for her long-awaited class. There was just one catch: The monthlong winter extension course could cost up to $225 per unit, nearly five times the normal price. Hilt went for it. The 26-year-old needed the class to learn to take blood samples for a new career as a medical technician.
