TICAS President to Testify Before House Education and Labor Committee on College Affordability

James Kvaal, president of The Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS), will provide expert testimony on college affordability at today’s House Education and Labor Committee hearing “The Cost of College: Student Centered Reforms to Bring Higher Education Within Reach.” His testimony will focus on how students and families pay for college and will highlight three policy solutions to make college more affordable and student debt less burdensome, including: reinvigorating the most important federal commitment to college opportunity: the Pell Grant; building a new partnership with states dedicated to affordability; and offering all students a simpler, easier way to repay their loans on a sliding scale based on their income.
