Support the Bill of Rights for Student Loan Borrowers
We support President Obama's proposal for a bill of rights for all student loan borrowers. Every borrower deserves access to the resources they need to pay for college, the ability to choose a repayment program that works for them, and the right to reliable information about their loans. We pledge to stand with the president and hardworking student loan borrowers across the country.
Why is this important?
A Student Aid Bill of Rights
1. Every student should have access to quality, affordable education and colleges and universities should find new ways to reduce costs, accelerate learning and help students earn degrees and certificates.
2. Every student should be able to easily access the resources needed to help pay for college, including scholarships that keeps pace with educational costs.
3. Every student who borrows a student loan should be able to choose a repayment plan that allows them to afford their monthly payments. (For example: Student Loan Refinancing, Income Based Repayment and Pay As You Earn)
4. Every student who borrows a student loan should have the right to high-quality customer service, including timely and reliable information about their loans and fair treatment if they face challenges repaying their loans.
