Community colleges forgive debt racked up during pandemic

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The president of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system says the state's 12 community colleges will forgive $17 million of student debt that was accumulated during the pandemic. CSCU President Terrence Cheng says the debt, which students took on during the pandemic or could not repay because of it, will be made up with money from the federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. The decision is expected to impact 18,161 current and former students. Cheng says there are no conditions attached, and students are not required to enroll in classes in any future semesters.
