Report Shows Bill could Boost Applications for State Aid by 15 Percent
(SACRAMENTO, CA) – With the deadline for college financial aid applications just days away, Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus, announced new legislation that is expected to expand access to financial aid for thousands of students by helping them complete their applications.
“Education is the greatest gift we can give to our children,” said Ting. “California is providing more help than ever to help families pay for college but too many students leave aid on the table. Students who apply for aid are twice as likely to enroll in college and more likely to graduate. This simple solution will ensure more students get help getting ahead.”
