This bill makes three changes to the New Jersey College Loans to Assist State Students (NJCLASS) Loan Program. First, it requires that the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) verify the financial information reported by a borrower or cosigner on an NJCLASS loan application. Second, it mandates that a student borrower, prior to receiving an NJCLASS loan, borrows the maximum amount available to the student under the federal Direct Subsidized and federal Direct Unsubsidized loan programs. Last, it provides that a student borrower's total loans under NJCLASS may not exceed $200,000.
