HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A proposal to require Connecticut colleges and universities to supply students with uniform financial aid information has passed in the state House of Representatives.
The bill, which passed Thursday 141-to-0, obliges institutions of higher education to provide a financial aid shopping sheet to each admitted student before the enrollment deadline.
The uniform reporting sheet was developed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to help service members and veterans make informed decisions.
It requires universities to report the cost of attendance, the amount of financial aid and loans for which the student is eligible, and the net price to attend the institution.
The bill, sponsored by Democratic Reps. Gregory Haddad of Mansfield and Patricia Dillon of New Haven, now moves to the Senate.
