We advocate for military-connected students before the Education Department

Disabled veterans’ right to student loan forgiveness

We had a major win in forcing the US Education Department to honor disabled veterans’ legal right to student loan forgiveness. Still more to do!

Loan Relief for Students Defrauded by a School

We fight for defrauded veterans to get their student loans forgiven by the Education Department, and their Pell Grants restored.

Integrity and Quality Standards by Colleges

We advocate for rules requiring colleges to abide by basic integrity rules and meet minimum quality standards.

Accreditation and Accreditors

We push for high quality standards by accreditors and we expose lax accreditors.

90/10 Loophole

Military connected students are targeted by aggressive and deceptive college recruiting because of a loophole in federal law.

Student Loan Debt

We work on policy to alleviate student loan debt.
