SAN FRANCISCO - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued a statement on the U.S. Department of Education’s actions against Heald College. 

“I applaud the Department of Education for taking strong action to hold Heald College accountable for its egregious misconduct at the expense of students.  Now that the Department has found that Heald engaged in illegal conduct, I urge the Department to act quickly to relieve these students from their student loan debt burdens, which will provide them with the opportunity to achieve their educational goals and rebuild their lives.”

On April 9, 2015, Attorney General Harris and eight other state Attorneys General sent a letter to the Department of Education urging the federal government to immediately relieve the debt burden of thousands of students who attended Heald College and other Corinthian Colleges, Incorporated campuses.
