Financial Aid Student Lending of Code of Conduct
Central Piedmont - Student Lending Code of Conduct
The Higher Education Opportunity Act of August 14, 2008 includes provisions that campuses participating in Title IV programs publish a code of conduct which describes prohibited practices related to loan programs. To avoid any conflict of interest with the responsibilities of a Central Piedmont employee with respect to student lending, the Central Piedmont Code of Conduct prohibits the following:
- revenue sharing arrangement with any lender
- the solicitation or acceptance of gifts from a lender, guarantor, or servicer by anyone with responsibilities with respect to loans at the institution
- receipt of any fees, payments, or other financial benefits (including a stock purchase option) by anyone with responsibilities with respect to loans from 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
- the assignment of a first-time borrower’s loan to a particular lender or refusing to certify or otherwise delay certification of any loan regardless of the lender or guaranty agency the borrower selects
- the acceptance of any funds to be used for private education loans in exchange for the institution providing concessions to the private lender
- requesting or accepting assistance with call center staffing or financial aid office staffing from any lender
- any employee with responsibilities with respect to financial assistance at the institution who serves on an advisory board or commission of a lender or guarantor may not accept anything of value from the lender or guarantor except reimbursement for the reasonable expenses of serving on the board or commission
