New Jersey Assembly Passes Seven Bills Aimed at Higher Education

Originally, a suite of twenty bills was being considered; seven were just voted out. They are: A668 – requiring colleges to present information on college costs and debt of graduating students; A2801 – stipulating that only 120 credits needed for a bachelor’s degree; A2802 – mandating a reverse transfer agreement in which up to thirty credits earned toward a bachelor’s degree can be used toward the completion of an associate’s degree; A2805 – establishing common course numbering system; A2807 – prohibiting an increase in fees and tuition for nine semesters after initial enrollment; A2814 –  revoking a for-profit’s license if it fails to graduate 75% of a class within six years of its starting; and A2815 – submitting an annual report on an institution’s debt.
