The Expensive Problem of Closed Colleges

Inside Higher Education is reporting today about how much closed school discharges -- through which students who attended postsecondary institutions that closed can have their student loan debt relieved -- is costing the federal government. Andrew Kreighbaum from Inside Higher Ed writes: "A string of recent for-profit college closures has led to tens of millions of dollars in student loan cancellation, creating new costs for the federal government on top of disruptions caused for thousands of former students... Those numbers likely will continue to rise as more students learn about their eligibility for loan relief and submit applications for what’s known as a closed-school discharge."
