A new Sacramento State program that will forgive outstanding fee debt for returning students is part of a series of initiatives aimed at getting learners back into the classroom and on the path to a degree.

The need to make good on unpaid fees – sometime in the hundreds or thousands of dollars – presents a significant barrier for many students hoping to return to college after having left before earning their degree. A new Sacramento State program, however, will eliminate that barrier by forgiving up to $1 million of outstanding debt owed to the University by adult learners who stopped out short of graduation.

The Hornet Debt Reset program is part of HornetAttain!, a campus-wide initiative managed by the College of Continuing Education (CCE), and the latest in the University’s efforts to better serve the more than 400,000 adults in the Sacramento region who have some college credits but no degree.

Brian Bedford, associate dean for strategic initiatives, sat down with KCRA 3 on Thursday to give more details about the program and who is eligible.
