One week left to participate in our beta test

A few weeks ago, the CFPB released an early prototype of a new tool to help students and families make smarter choices about financing college.

The CFPB recognizes that we can develop better products and policy with the help of the public. Already, we’ve heard from so many participants about what’s working well and what we should tweak.

On May 17th, we will be closing the first round of beta testing and will start analyzing your feedback. This will help our designers, developers, and experts on the team to determine where we need more testing and input. We’ll be sure to share our findings from the feedback on this blog.

Our goal is for students and families to have an even more useful interactive tool for next year’s financial aid season to help them make one of the most important decisions of their financial lives. To get updates on this initiative and other projects for students, subscribe here.

Like all of our Know Before You Owe projects, your feedback is critical. If you haven’t had a chance yet, take a few minutes and chime in on what you think about our beta version today!
