Helping your students get their loans out of delinquency and default
It’s easy to refer your students to their loan servicer. But do you really know what happens after they leave your office? When they make that call? Most students don’t know what a servicer is. In this workshop, we will discuss the basic assistance that every counselor should be able to provide their students, including informing students how to advocate for themselves, providing options for rehabilitation and supplying the necessary documentation.

College campuses: The new playground for cyber criminals
Every day it seems there are new reports in the media involving data breaches at some of the most recognizable and trusted companies in America. Identity theft touches everyone and costs consumers billions of dollars each year.

In this session, we will focus on the methods thieves are using to obtain personal information. We will also discuss ways you can assist students in identifying when they have become a victim of identity theft. Additionally, we will review some of the tools students can use to help them fix the problem and how they can protect themselves from these cunning criminals in the future.
