CFPB Launches New “Paying For College” Website


We support reforms to the financial marketplace that protect consumers from unscrupulous banks and lenders.

By Consumers Union on Friday, December 14th, 2012

Today the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau launched a new interactive site that helps students make smarter decisions about paying for college.  From comparing costs at different colleges and applying for financial aid to choosing a bank account and managing student loans, the site offers crucial information about each step of a student’s financial journey through higher education.

The site is currently in beta form, so it may undergo a few more changes, but you can test it now and give them your feedback!

Knowledge is power when it comes to choosing how to pay for college.  Given the rise in student loan indebtedness nationwide, it’s more important than ever to make informed decisions about how you finance your education.
