Bernie Sanders (D)

Free tuition, no fees: Sen. Sanders has sponsored a bill to award grants to states to eliminate tuition and required fees at public colleges and universities.

Student loans: He would like to guarantee affordable loans and let graduates refinance their federal loans to take advantage of lower interest rates.

Estimated cost: At least $470 billion over 10 years, paid for by imposing a securities transaction tax.

*Candidates will be added if their proposals become available.
