January 30, 2024 — Letter

This coalition letter from organizations representing students, consumers, veterans, faculty and staff, civil rights advocates, and researchers expresses concerns with multiple provisions in H.R. 6951, The College Cost Reduction Act (CCRA). Although this legislative package includes some new approaches to holding colleges accountable for student outcomes and incorporates some bipartisan proposals, the package also includes many troubling provisions that, together, would leave students less protected from high-cost, low-quality, and predatory programs, and would force many low-income student loan borrowers to pay more and remain in debt longer.
