Three student loan scams to watch for

The pandemic created a perfect breeding ground for scammers to take advantage of student loan borrowers. In a CNBC article, Kristen Evans, chief of the students and young consumers section at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, said “Scammers really prey on the financially vulnerable, and so with the pandemic, many people have been struggling financially and they are looking for financial relief.”


There are three main types of student loan scams to watch out for:


Student Loan Consolidation Scam

A company promises (for a fee) to consolidate your student loans and lower your monthly payments.

What you should know
The only official student loan consolidation is through the federal government. Check out studentaid.gov or call 800-557-7394.
There is no fee for student loan consolidation.


Student Loan Forgiveness Scam 

A company promises (for a fee) to forgive your student loans.

What you should know:
No private company will "forgive" your student loans, no matter how much you pay them.
Public Service Loan Forgiveness is a legitimate federal program for public servants with federal student loans, but it does not charge an upfront fee.


IRS Student Tax Scam 

You receive a phone call from someone claiming to be an IRS agent who says you owe a "federal student tax." If you don't make immediate payment, the caller threatens arrest or a lawsuit.

What you should know:
The IRS will always contact you by mail before calling you.
The IRS will never demand immediate payment, request a specific form of payment, or threaten you with arrest or deportation.
The IRS will not request personal or financial information by email.


Stories wanted for senior exhibition project

Lura Ajdini ’22 is working on her senior art exhibition and looking for survivors of domestic violence who would be willing to have their story included in a magazine she is producing. If you or anyone you know is a survivor of domestic violence, you can share your story with her here. Please be aware that the link includes questions about domestic violence.


College weather-related closure policy
This time of year, the chance for severe winter weather grows more likely. For such situations, the college has a weather-related closure policy posted here. The policy also is linked from the front page of the Student Handbook page and the Academic Affairs website.
Campus snow removal map

Please remember to use caution when snow and ice are present on sidewalks and steps. Operations & Maintenance will remove snow and add salt or sand to icy spots on sidewalks and steps on campus according to the priority snow removal map. Parking lots will be cleared and salted or sanded as needed by a third party.
