SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Following a week of student protests and a request from the chancellor of the California community college system to hold off, Santa Monica College has canceled its plan to offer certain popular courses at higher prices this summer.

At an emergency meeting on Friday, the college’s board of trustees voted to indefinitely postpone implementation of the two-tiered payment system, which would have offered 50 of the courses in the highest demand for $180 per credit hour, in addition to the 700 courses the college already offers for $36.
