2021 NCHER Roundtable: Examining New Business Opportunities
The higher education finance marketplace has rapidly evolved over the last decade. As the federal guaranteed loan program continues to amortize, many lenders, servicers, and collection agencies have created private loan programs to cover the gaps that exist between cost of attendance charged by institutions of higher education and federal borrowing limits. Several servicers and guaranty agencies converted to philanthropic or college access and success foundations or become third-party servicers in order to help institutions of higher education address high cohort default rates or to work with struggling borrowers while other members have become federal contractors and subcontractors to help service and recover on the Federal Direct Loan portfolio. In all cases, these members harnessed the decades of experience in working with students and families.
This roundtable will include a panel of experts to discuss the current state and future of the American higher education system, new business opportunities that may exist at the federal level, and how organizations have had success in reviewing and revising their business plans for the future. The roundtable envisions a robust and off-the-record discussion between panelists and the membership on the best way to move forward in light of the changing political and policy environment, especially related to generating revenue that will replace funding from the Federal Family Education Loan Program.
No registrations will be accepted after 5:00pm on September 26, 2021.
