The CFPB is a government bureau established to protect consumers from predatory credit practices. They are looking to speak with students who have been recruited by for-profit colleges with offers that include student loan packages. Below is the information about how to participate in this study. Please consider sharing your experiences to help the CFPB ascertain whether additional protections are needed for students!
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), an independent government agency, is looking to speak with students at for-profit colleges or universities to better understand their experiences around the financial aid and student loan process.
For-profit schools include colleges like ITT Tech, the University of Phoenix, and The Art Institutes. If you’re unsure whether your school is classified as “for-profit,” please check this list of for-profit institutions. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_for-profit_universities_and_colleges
We’d love to speak with you if you fit the following criteria:
● You’ve enrolled in a for-profit school in the past 12 months or you plan to enroll in a for-profit school in the next three months
● And you were offered financial aid from your school
Our 45-minute interviews can be scheduled in person (in select cities) or through a video chat.
If you are interested in helping by sharing your experiences, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
● Your name
● What school you are attending or plan to attend
We’ll get back to you to schedule a convenient time to talk.
Thank you in advance for your help!
