“As I’ve said before, Sacramento State exists to serve our community, and to serve all students, including those who started college but had to stop along the way. HornetAttain! will help us to welcome back all individuals who want to complete their degrees, while also continuing to deepen and strengthen our impact on the Sacramento region.” — Sacramento State President Robert S. Nelsen

The need to make good on unpaid fees – sometime in the hundreds or thousands of dollars – presents a significant barrier for many students hoping to return to college after having left before earning their degree.

A new Sacramento State program, however, will eliminate that barrier by forgiving up to $1 million of outstanding debt owed to the University by adult learners who stopped out short of graduation.

The Hornet Debt Reset program is part of HornetAttain!, a campuswide initiative managed by the College of Continuing Education (CCE), and the latest in the University’s efforts to better serve the more than 400,000 adults in the Sacramento region who have some college credits but no degree.

Removing barriers to students’ return creates tangible benefits. For returning students, degrees can lead to higher-paying jobs with better benefits, more employment opportunities, and a greater sense of pride and self-worth. For the region, more graduates result in a larger pool of college-educated workers, a critical factor in attracting employers.
