AB 1160: Protecting Students from Creditor Colleges Act

AB1160 banner graphic

I’m carrying Assembly Bill 1160, the Protecting Students from Creditor Colleges Act, because we need to shield California students from harmful debt collection practices initiated by their colleges and remove barriers for students to complete their higher education goals. This little-known type of student debt, called 'institutional debt,' has exploded in California since the onset of COVID-19, as students withdrew from California public colleges for economic, family, or health reasons. AB 1160 will protect students from the most harmful impacts of this debt and provide much-needed transparency on the growth and impact of this debt across our state.
