NEW YORK (CNN.com) — Hillary Clinton will roll out her college affordability plan Monday, pledging to voters in New Hampshire that “costs won’t be a barrier” to secondary education in a Clinton administration.

Clinton, who has been asked about college affordability throughout the first months of her campaign, will announce what her campaign is calling the “New College Compact,” a pledge to tackle the cost of college, making low interest grants and loans more available and ensure the federal government “will never again profit off student loans for college students.”

According to outlines of the plan previewed to CNN, the basis of Clinton’s college promises include vowing that students will be able to attend in-state public colleges or universities “without ever having to take out a loan for tuition.”

Clinton will do this, according to the campaign, by incentives to states that agree to provide “no-loan tuition at four-year public colleges and universities.” States that agree, under the Clinton plan, will win grants from the federal government.
