California University officials support loans for undocumented students



Patrick McGreevy of the Los Angeles Times reports that UC President Janet Napolitano and Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez said their university systems support legislation creating a loan program to assist undocumented students.

California grants undocumented students 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 $6,000 annually for those attending the University of California campuses and $3,000 for students at California State University schools.
