  • Bloomsburg University does not participate in any revenue-sharing arrangements with any lender.

  • Bloomsburg University does not permit any officer, employee, or agent of the school who is employed in the financial aid office or is otherwise involved in the administration of education loans to accept any gifts of greater than a nominal value from any lender, guarantor, or servicer.

  • Bloomsburg University does not permit any officer, employee, or agent of the school who is employed in the financial aid office or is otherwise involved in the administration of education loans to accept any fee, payment, or other financial benefit (including a stock purchase option) from a lender or affiliate of a lender as compensation for any type of consulting arrangement or contract to provide services to a lender or on behalf of a lender relating to education loans.

  • Bloomsburg University does not permit any officer, employee, or agent of the school who is employed in the financial aid office or is otherwise involved in the administration of education loans to accept anything of value from a lender, advisory board, commission, or other group established by such a lender, guarantor group of lenders, and/or guarantors.  Bloomsburg University does allow for reasonable reimbursement of expenses associated with participation in such boards, commissions, or groups by lenders, guarantors, or groups of lenders and/or guarantors.

  • Bloomsburg University does not assign a lender to any first-time borrower through financial aid packaging or any other means.

  • Bloomsburg University will not request or accept any offer of funds to be used for private education loans to students from any lender in exchange for providing the lender with a specified number or volume of Title IV loans, or a preferred lender arrangement for Title IV loans.

  • Bloomsburg University will not request or accept any assistance with call center or financial aid office staffing.
