Universities support loans for undocumented studentsLos Angeles Times.
University of California President Janet Napolitano and Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez said their university systems were backing legislation creating the loan programme, which will cost the state and campuses up to US$9.1 million in the first year. Napolitano noted that the state previously granted students in the country illegally access to state scholarships and the in-state residence rate.
However, those students are not eligible for federal student loans so there is a gap in their financial aid of up to US$6,000 annually for those attending the University of California campuses and US$3,000 for students at California State University schools.
