Recruiting, Marketing, and Advertising

Campbell University maintains the highest integrity to ensure and refrains from providing commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal financial aid (including Tuition Assistance funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting, admission activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance. Additionally, Campbell University will not utilize high-pressure recruitment tactics to enroll students.  Campbell University follows the regulations set forth by the Department of Education (34 C.F.R 668.71-668.75 and 668.14).

Campbell University provides information to employees that is compliant with program integrity requirements consistent with the regulations issued by ED [Department of Education] (34 C.F.R 668.71-668.75 and 668.14) related to restrictions on misrepresentation, recruitment, and payment of incentive compensation. This applies to the educational institution itself and its agents including third-party lead generators, marketing firms, or companies that own or operate the educational institution. As part of efforts to eliminate unfair, deceptive, and abusive marketing aimed at Service members, educational institutions will:

(1) Ban inducements, including any gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, loan, transportation, lodging, meals, or other item having a monetary value of more than a de minimis [defined as “an insignificant amount”] to any individual or entity, or its agents including third-party lead generators or marketing firms other than salaries paid to employees or fees paid to contractors in conformity with all applicable laws for the purpose of securing enrollments of Service members or obtaining access to TA funds. Educational institution sponsored scholarships or grants and tuition reductions available to military students are permissible

(2) Refrain from providing any commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal financial aid (including TA funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting, admission activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance;

(3) Refrain from high-pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in-person, and engaging in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing Service members enrollments.

The purpose of the federal student loan program is to provide the best possible loan terms for students and parents who borrow to help finance higher education. Campbell University students and families receive trustworthy, reliable guidance from our institution about financial aid. The following guidelines are a framework to provide the best possible loan servicing for the students served by Campbell University and to avoid conflicts or the appearance of conflicts of interest.

Campbell University is prohibited from receiving anything of value from any lending institution in exchange for any advantage sought by the lending institution. This prohibits any inappropriate financial arrangements between lenders and the university and specifically prohibits “revenue sharing” arrangements. Lenders cannot pay to be cited on the university’s lender list.

Campbell University employees are prohibited from accepting anything of more than nominal value from any lending institution. This includes a prohibition for financial aid officers and other university officials from trips, catered meals, golf outings, etc. paid for by lenders.

Financial Aid personnel do not participate on lender advisory boards but may certainly discuss student loan services and products for Campbell University students and parents with lenders.

For assistance with choosing a lender, Campbell University provides a list of lenders that Campbell University students have used during the past two years. This list is prominently displayed on the institutional website.

The university must ensure that employees of lenders never identify themselves as students as employees of the university. No employee of a lender may ever work in or provide staffing assistance to the university’s financial aid office.

Campbell University employees with responsibilities with respect to education loans are informed annually of the provisions of the code of conduct.

Pre-Enrollment Information

Campbell University ensures that Campbell University staff members follow the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding (referenced below). Additionally, the institution directs Service members to speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service prior to enrolling the student in the institution.

Per DoD MOU paragraph 4.d.

(1) Approved Courses. If an eligible Service member decides to use TA, educational institutions will enroll him or her only after the TA is approved by the individual’s Service. Service members will be solely responsible for all tuition costs without this prior approval. This requirement does not prohibit an educational institution from pre-registering a Service member in a course in order to secure a slot in the course. If a school enrolls the Service member before the appropriate Service approves Military TA, then the Service member could be responsible for the tuition. All Military TA must be requested and approved prior to the start date of the course. The Military TA is approved on a course-by-course basis and only for the specific course(s) and class dates that a Service member requests. If a military student “self-identifies” their eligibility and the Service has not approved the funding, then the Service member will be solely responsible for all tuition costs, not the Service.
