  • College Students ‘Subprimed’ | WISPIRG Students
    9th In addition to its many other functions the CFPA would ensure that products like private student loans are fair and transparent It is essential we have a consumer watchdog to ensure that students don t plunge headlong into financial risk to pay for a college degree and it is critical that private student loans are covered by the agency Williams noted on Tuesday Subpriming Students also finds that the over 2 million students attending for profit colleges could fall prey to aggressive marketing of private loans made directly by these colleges Direct institutional loans increase enrollment at for profit schools but at a high cost to students Unfortunately a loophole in the House version of the bill to create the CFPA would exempt these risky institutional private loans from CFPA regulation This is especially worrisome given that students attending for profit colleges have higher average debt levels than those at public colleges 32 650 versus 17 700 Almost any school or company can offer a high cost student loan and market it Lacking regulation the products are hazardous Interest rates on private student loans can be three times as high as rates on federal loans and fees can be pegged at almost 10 percent of the loan principal Subpriming Students adds Last year almost 2 out of every 3 private loan borrowers did not reach the federal Stafford student loan limit before taking out a costlier private loan 26 percent took out no Stafford loans at all Students throughout the country are facing high tuition now and shaky job prospects at graduation Williams said Providing security to students requires strong rules for private student loan marketing as well as terms and conditions Only a strong Consumer Financial Protection Agency can do the job he concluded Click here to obtain

    down the cost of college said Rich Williams Higher Education Advocate for WISPIRG Students We applaud President Obama for standing up to Wall Street and its backers on Capitol Hill on behalf of students in need of protection from unfair financial practices The average student now graduates with over 25 000 in federal student loan debt Hundreds of thousands of students also assume expensive private student loans before exhausting more consumer friendly college financing options Private student loans pile more debt on students because they provide the worst rates and terms to students with the greatest financial need In addition students are targets for high interest high fee credit cards and debit cards on campus The appointment bypasses Senate opponents who pledged to block any director unless the bureau was first weakened in a manner approved by Wall Street The confirmation of a director also grants the bureau all of its new powers under law to act to protect students About Us Our Leadership Our Mission Accomplishments Local Chapters UW Madison UW Stevens Point Get Involved Action Center Campaign Resources Start a PIRG Chapter Full Time Jobs Campus Internships Volunteer on Campus Campaigns 21st Century Transportation Affordable Higher Education Hunger
