Agency: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)
Section 1021 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) charges the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau or CFPB) with ‘‘collecting, researching, monitoring and publishing information’’ about consumer financial products and services. The Bureau seeks information on how current and future partnerships or other arrangements between institutions of higher education (including their affiliated entities) and financial institutions could be structured to promote positive financial decision-making among young consumers. We also seek information to develop a clearer picture of the financial products and services that are being offered to college students, as well as consumers’ experiences using those products and services. The Bureau encourages comments from the public; including student and parent consumers, institutions of higher education, and financial institutions.
