Minnesota House unanimously passes bill for financial relief for Argosy students

In a unanimous vote, the Minnesota House approved a bill which would give financial relief to students who attended Argosy University, which closed its Eagan campus mid-semester this March.

The measure passed on 125-0 vote Thursday.

Under the legislation, Argosy students would no longer be held liable for any Minnesota SELF student loans for the spring 2019 semester. The Office of Higher Education will also pay the students directly for other state financial aid.

Without this legislation, the students would still be required to pay back those loans.

The Senate still has to approve the legislation, but the bill is expected to reach Governor Tim Walz's desk.
