California Assemblyman Scott Will of Santa Clarita introduced AB 1306, a bill that would create the New University of California. What's new about this institution? No faculty.
The New University of California shall provide no instruction, but shall issue college credit and baccalaureate and associate degrees to any person capable of passing examinations.
Students will just gain the knowledge and skills on their own and then pay the New University to take the final exam and receive academic credit.

Who would drive over a bridge designed and built by civil engineers alumni of the New University? If this idea is so wonderful, why restrict it to associate and baccalaureate degrees? Who wouldn't see a physician who earned their M.D. from a medical school at the New University?
