Title:

CSU Student Debt Collection Practices

Under Section III, d, of the Standing Orders, this executive order requires that all third party providers used to collect any student debt are limited to those approved through the Chancellor’s Office selection process. Student debt includes all debt incurred by individuals relating to a current or past CSU program.

Federal law requires the use of third party providers to collect federal student debt. (See Code of Federal Regulations, Title 34, Section 674.45.) There are significant legal and other risks in any debt collection activity. The Chancellor’s Office third party provider selection process permits appropriate oversight to ensure compliance with the law and appropriate business tactics.

A list of the approved providers can be found at the CSU Contract Services & Procurement (CSP) Financial Services page, under the description “Financial Collection Services”: http://redding.calstate.edu/es/csp/storetemplate.cfm?storeid=6.

The list of approved providers will be updated as necessary. Campuses interested in having a provider added to the list should consult with Dean Kulju, Director of Student Financial Aid Services and Programs, at (562) 951-4737.
