Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have cited college tuition and student debt as issues they intend to address during their presidencies, if elected.

Despite his recognition of the heavy burden of college tuition, Republican presidential nominee and 1968 Wharton graduate Donald Trump has no formal policy platform for tackling the issue. His ideas for to solving the student debt crisis are mere extrapolations from tweets as well as off-the-cuff remarks and intimations he has made in interviews and speeches.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s plans to address student debt are delineated on her campaign website. Her platform is based on aiding students to pay off their debt as well as student loan forgiveness.
