President Obama Signs the “Student Aid Bill of Rights”

President Obama signed the “Student Aid Bill of Rights” that by 2016 should make the entire process of repaying students loans a less painful one. This fact sheet from the White House lays out the salient points. The New York Times has an extensive section on student loans; other worthwhile reads include: Federal Student Loan Forgiveness and Loan Repayment Programs (CRS, 2014); Quick Facts About Student Debt (Project Student Debt, 2014); in addition, Project Student Debt has the 2013 debt load for graduates of 4-year colleges in New Jersey – NJCU ranks the lowest by far; Congratulations to Class of 2014, Most Indebted Ever (Wall Street Journal, with many charts); The Future of Student Loans (compilation of articles from Insidehighered, 2014); and Library blog entries on student debt.
