New Federal Rules To Protect Students And Help Borrowers

The U.S. Department of Education announced two final regulations to protect students and help borrowers. These rules become effective in July 2016.

This webinar explains how these rules impact your financial institution.

About The Rules:

Government estimates show that nearly $25 billion in federal aid is issued on campus debit and pre-paid cards annually, and about 40% of college students attend a school that partners with a financial institution that provides funds through this method.

The new rules are designed to help student's make informed decisions re their credit, protect student information, and help ease loan debt. The rules apply new requirements on financial institutions.

Covered Topics:

Part One: The Rules Protecting Students and Federal Student Aid
(Presenter=Deborah Crawford)

  • Prohibit institutions from requiring students or parents to open a ertain account into which their credit balances are deposited
  • Require institutions to ensure that students are not charged overdraft fees if students select an account offered directly or indirectly by contractors that assist institutions in making direct payments of federal student aid
  • Require an institution to provide a list of account options that a student may choose from to receive credit balance funds, where each option is presented in a neutral manner and the student's preexisting bank account is listed as the first, most prominent, and default option
  • Require institutions to ensure electronic payments made to a student's preexisting account are as timely as, and no more onerous to the student than, payments made to accounts marketed through the institution
  • Protect students from unreasonable account fees
  • Safeguard taxpayer dollars
  • Provide transparency regarding accounts offered to students by requiring disclosure of the agreements between institutions and financial account providers as well as the costs students incur
  • Ensure students have a choice about how to receive their federal aid
  • Prohibit the student's personal information from being shared without their consent
Part Two: Easing Student Loan Debt
(Presenter=Susan Costonis)
  • Starting in 2016; an expansion of the circumstances under which institutions may challenge or appeal a cohort default rate that appears artificially high because of a corresponding low rate of student borrowing
  • Starting July 1, 2016; new procedures for FFEL Program loan holders to identify servicemembers who may be eligible for a lower interest rate under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), enabling these borrowers to receive this important benefit automatically
  • Starting July 1, 2016; A requirement that guarantors provide information to FFEL Program borrowers on repayment plans available to them after they rehabilitate their defaulted loans, to help ensure that borrowers have a smoother transition to regular repayment.
  • A provision to allow lump-sum payments made on behalf of borrowers through student loan repayment programs administered by the Department of Defense to count toward Public Service Loan Forgiveness, similar to the application of lump sum payments for Peace Corps and AmeriCorps volunteers. This action assures that these borrowers benefit more fully from their public service employment.
