Banking on campus forum


We hosted a forum to discuss financial products and services marketed to college students.


We’d still like to hear from you. Leave a comment on our Facebook page or tweet at us with #bankingoncampus.

Earlier this year, we published a notice asking about student checking accounts, debit cards, and other financial products. We heard from students, schools, and financial institutions about a range of issues. At the forum, we shared some of our findings about what we learned – check out our presentation.

We also heard from speakers representing the Office of the Attorney General of New York, the U.S. Department of Education, financial institutions, institutions of higher education, as well as students, and consumer advocates.
