Gov. Rick Scott on Monday issued a challenge to community colleges statewide: Create bachelor's degree programs that cost students $10,000 or less.

By the end of the day, leaders of seven colleges -- including Valencia College, Seminole State College and Daytona State College in Central Florida, and Broward College in South Florida -- said they'd take him up on the proposition.

"Governor, you have come to the right place," Valencia President Sandy Shugart said when Scott arrived at Valencia to promote the plan.
