California students lose out on college credit in new law

California students who enrolled at the University of California at Los Angeles, Cal State Fullerton, UC Berkeley and other schools in 2015 or 2016 will lose out after the state legislature passed a bill that would force those institutions to use the federal student aid formula.

Lawmakers passed SB835, which they say will help California students pay for the costs of higher education.

California has one of the nation’s largest student debt burdens, estimated at more than $100 billion.

But the bill would require colleges to use a federal aid formula that would increase student debt by $200 billion over five years.

The measure has already passed the Senate, where it’s headed to Gov.

Jerry Brown’s desk.

The Assembly passed it last week.

But the measure’s chances of passing the Republican-controlled statehouse are slim, because Republicans control the state Senate.

The legislation has to be signed by Brown before he can sign it.

If passed, the bill will require students to pay for college for three years, with the money to be used for their undergraduate education.

If that doesn’t happen, they would have to pay off their loans.

The bill would also make it harder for California students to transfer credits, requiring them to pay a $25 transfer fee.

That fee, which will be levied on all California residents regardless of their ability to pay, has sparked protests by California State University students.

They say it will force them to live off their student loans.

Gov.

Brown and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, D-San Francisco, say the bill is needed to help students afford college.

The governor says he would veto the bill if it passed.

But many California state lawmakers have criticized the measure, saying the bill has nothing to do with college.
