Default Prevention Day Archives

Default Prevention Day Archives

The Missouri Department of Higher Education offered a free, half-day default prevention training on May 2, 2012. Special speakers included representatives from the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Attendees learned how to better promote their financial literacy initiatives and stress important financial aid deadlines by employing students on campus to help get their peers’ attention. The morning was packed with pertinent information to help prevent student loan defaults and thus, lower cohort default rates.
