Paying for College
From start to finish, we can help you make informed financial decisions about paying for college.
Repay student debt
While we can’t give you advice for your exact situation, we can point you in the right direction.
We’ll forward your issue to the company, give you a tracking number, and keep you updated on the status of your complaint.
Student loan reports
On May 8th, we released a report discussing comments we received in response to a request for information and outlining options policymakers and market participants should consider to help student borrowers manage their debt.
Based on complaints, comments, and other input, we explain how some borrowers face obstacles when repaying their private student loans.

Managing your college money
Choosing your first bank account is an important decision. Unlike that first school ID photo, your first banking relationship could last long after you graduate. Making a smart decision now will mean fewer surprise fees that can add up later.
Leveling the playing field
In partnership with the Department of Education, we’ve developed a financial aid shopping sheet to improve the way schools communicate financial aid offers. More than 500 colleges have agreed to use the shopping sheet.
Military education accountability
We’re working with the Departments of Education, Defense, and Veterans Affairs to take steps to ensure that servicemembers, veterans and their families can get the information they need about the schools where they spend their education benefits.
