Los Angeles, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (Los Angeles) Roughly 1,000 students at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology will have their tuition debt forgiven, thanks to the School Administration’s decision to use their funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
"This is a commitment to put our students first," said TCSPP President Michele Nealon. "We are committed to their success, and forgiving their debt gives them a path forward without the worry of financial burden."
The fund will pay off $3.5 million in student debt at the 40-year-old college with campuses in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego & Anaheim, Washington DC., and New Orleans.
Congress passed the CARES Act in March of last year. The bill allotted $2.2 trillion for economic aid to the country, with $14 billion directed to higher education institutions.
