Higher Education and Financial Services: Scary Regulatory Issues

October 29, 2015
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

It is a spooky world for colleges and universities as regulators increase their focus on institutions’ compliance practices, particularly in the area of campus financial products and services. 

College-branded credit cards, investment practices of university endowments and marketing of banks on campus are among the fronts on which institutions could find trouble brewing with regulators. Schools are haunted by regulatory agencies, that include not only the Department of Education (ED), but also the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Department of Justice (DOJ), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state attorneys general.  

Join us for a webinar discussing the “spine-chilling” topics in higher education and financial services regulations that could put your school in a frightening situation. 


  • Agreements between colleges and financial companies, including affinity products (financial products and services that carry a school’s explicit or implicit endorsement), ED- proposed restrictions on campus financial products and the CFPB draft scorecard 
  • Endowments, especially the possibility that CFTC rules could render university endowments “commodity-pool operators” 
  • Student loans, with a focus on current regulatory issues in loan servicing and collection 
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings
