Higher Education Legislation


An Oregon House committee is considering a couple bills aimed at helping families decide if getting a college degree or certificate is worth the investment.

State Representative Michael Dembrow (dem-bro) is sponsoring a bill, which would require the State Education Department to maintain a list of loan default rates for each degree or certificate program.

A companion bill would require colleges and universities to publish the costs of degrees and certificates, as well as the average salaries earned by recent graduates in those programs. The nation's student loan default rate is close to 25 percent.
