Author(s):Project on Student Debt
Title:Denied: Community college students lack access to affordable loans
Organization:Project on Student Debt
Short Description:Students cannot get a federal student loan if the school they attend does not participate in the federal loan program. While almost all four-year colleges and universities in the country do participate, an alarming number of community colleges – where lower income and minority students are most likely to attend – do not.
Annotation:Federal student loans are offered to students regardless of their income or credit history. With college costs rising faster than grant aid, the federal student loan programs can help fill the gap with reasonably priced financing for almost every college student. Students cannot get a federal student loan if the school they attend does not participate in the federal loan program. While almost all four-year colleges and universities in the country do participate, an alarming number of community colleges – where lower income and minority students are most likely to attend – do not.
