Today, a college degree is one of the surest ways to economic opportunity, but it has also never been more expensive. Earlier this year, President Obama announced “America’s College Promise”, a proposal that would make two years of community college free for anyone who’s willing to work for it. On the heels of that announcement, the president recently called for a new “Student Aid Bill of Rights” to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality and affordable education.
While the president’s proposals are significant strides in making a college education attainable to more students, there are still millions of undocumented students who face a complex set of policies that too often prevent them from accessing and completing a postsecondary education.
