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.
