  • Students Lose When Financial Aid Goes Onto Fee-Laden Debit Cards | NJPIRG Student Chapters
    a student gets a debit card in the mail with the school logo they re liable to think that the card and the account are sanctioned by the school They re not going to immediately assume Oh this is the bank that offered my school the most money to issue us debit cards When it comes to banks students are likelier to stick with that institution even after they graduate because switching banks is such a hassle Ideally they d be able to select a bank and an account based on their own needs PIRG says the school should be looking out for students best interests not their own bottom lines But in reality the study says that s what happens Although colleges and banks tend to keep their contracts pretty close to the vest the report offered one telling example In a contract with Ohio State University Huntington Bank agreed to pay the school 25 million over 15 years plus lend and invest up to 100 million more in the area around the campus This is big money and PIRG contends too much of this is being earned at students expense Although it s possible for students today to get financial aid via a paper check or direct deposited into another bank account study co author Rich Williams says some institutions make it deliberately difficult for them to do so Getting a paper check may require a wait of as long as a couple of weeks a time frame that simply isn t an option for many students especially those who are lower income To get funds direct deposited students might find that they have to jump through hoops like filling out forms by hand and finding a place where they can send them via fax in order for their request to be processed MORE 6 Common Misconceptions About Financial Aid Roughly 700 of the 900 partnerships are for debit cards attached to a checking account the remainder are prepaid debit cards Williams says Although prepaid debit fees have gotten a lot of attention lately including from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau some of the conventional debit cards are just as bad Multiplying the impact is the fact that some of this financial aid comes in the form of loans which means students are paying interest on the money they re forking over in fees In some cases students are charged 50 cents every time they use their cards to make a PIN based purchase at a retailer an amount that can multiply quickly if the card is their primary access point to their money Williams says a student pays an average of 5 each time they use a non partner ATM to access their funds Higher One although it serves 520 campuses only has 600 ATMs that are fee free for students to use If these machines break down or run out of money which happens before lunchtime on some days right after aid funds are deposited onto

  • Student-Grown Produce at Rutgers Provides Fresh, Organic Option | NJPIRG Student Chapters
    on Ryders Lane the plants are housed in one of the farm s greenhouses during the winter and for the summer months have been moved to an outdoor plot During a recent visit to the garden rows of lush brightly colored lettuces filled the plot Granet said the group comprised of student volunteers have grown a variety of lettuces including Flashy Trout Back Red Cross Summer Concept and Adriana varieties They also recently supplied a crop of radishes to the dining hall Granet said About 10 to 12 dedicated students tend to the garden regularly in what is often a daily task Currently they harvest the plants on Wednesdays gather them in bins and drive them right over to the Neilson Dining Hall where they are cleaned and served sometimes within hours of bring harvested Granet said While school is currently out for the summer the fresh produce is used for college luncheons and other campus events but during the school year is put right out on the buffet line for students she said The students plan to expand their offerings based on feedback which Granet said has been overwhelmingly positive Students are requesting more organic produce specifically fruit she said but overall they re saying that more organic options as a whole would be welcome We kind of created this brand she said The feedback has been so tremendous In addition to just supplying the produce an educational initiative to impart more knowledge about organic food is the second part of the project They ve sponsored healthy eating events during Rutgers Day and with Rutgers Hillel and NJPIRG s Agricultural Subsidies Campaign Granet said In addition to educating the campus community the group is reaching out to other colleges and universities encouraging them to set up their own organic

  • Campus debit cards can carry downsides | NJPIRG Student Chapters
    a card with a MasterCard logo choose the debit option and enter their personal identification number They don t get charged the fee if they use the credit option and sign the receipt This type of fee has been particularly controversial Students at Portland State University and Southern Oregon University protested the fee and had it removed Under one deal a student debit cardholder can be charged a 10 fee if another person tries to load money onto the student s card electronically but the transaction is canceled because the other person s bank account has insufficient funds Students can be assessed a fee when they check their balance at an ATM One institution charges 60cents per inquiry This does not include charges potentially assessed by the ATM owner Supporters of the fee structures on these campus card products insist fees are a natural consequence of electronic banking However students can easily find checking accounts available to the general public in the marketplace that are virtually free to use the report says Students can often opt to have their financial aid directly deposited into an account not affiliated with a financial institution working with their college They can get a paper check But inertia and heavy marketing by the financial companies often result in students choosing the cards being pushed under the college backed partnerships Students are not necessarily making their financial choices freely the report says When the college has selected a student ID vendor that incidentally offers additional banking services on the college mascot embellished card the student s choices are limited and the student is under the presumption that the college endorses the provider These deals many of which are not publicly disclosed raise questions that demand answers If students are getting precious grant aid or loans
