(a) The clerk, immediately upon the filing of the certificate specified in Section 69763.1, shall enter a judgment for the people of the State of California against the individual in the amount of the loan principal, interest, and predefault and collection costs listed on the certificate. The clerk may file the judgment in the book entitled "California Student Aid Commission Judgments."
(b) Execution shall issue upon the judgment specified in subdivision (a) upon request of the Student Aid Commission in the same manner as execution may issue upon other judgments as prescribed in the Code of Civil Procedure.
(c) At least 10 days before executing any writ to collect, the commission shall send notice of the intent to execute upon a writ to the borrower and to any cosigners, by certified mail, to the most recent addresses maintained in the files of the commission. Any person receiving the notice of the intent to execute upon a writ may request a hearing to contest the existence or the amount of the writ. At the request of the individual, the commission shall conduct a hearing pursuant to Section 69763.1, at which it shall be determined whether the loan principal, interest, and predefault and collection costs in the amount claimed by the commission are due and whether the individual named on the certificate is liable for the amount. If no hearing is requested, the execution shall be commenced for the garnishment of wages, the attachment of property, or other legal collection action.
