On May 2, join SWT and our presenter Betsy Mayotte, a nationally recognized expert on all things student loans, for this can't miss session!
This session will focus on helping institutions more effectively prepare students and alumni to manage their student debt. Learn how to best get your exit counseling and other financial literacy tools to “stick”, how to help borrowers build good relationships with their loan holders and get some advice on managing an institutions cohort default rate. Finally, we’ll talk a bit of politics and PSLF.
Betsy Mayotte is the President and Founder of The Institute of Student Loan Advisors (TISLA). She has been working in the student loan industry doing compliance and advocacy work for over 20 years and has helped thousands of borrowers with their student loans. Most recently, she has spent the last 18 years working for American Student Assistance®, a Boston-based nonprofit organization with 60 years’ experience helping people make better decisions about financing their education and repaying student loans.
Betsy has served as a primary negotiator for several federal Title IV negotiated rulemaking sessions on topics such as the use of student loans at foreign schools, loan rehabilitation and borrower defense to repayment. In addition, Mayotte frequently conducts regulatory trainings for the higher education financing industry both in the United States and as far away as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. She is regularly quoted in the media on student loan issues and was a frequent contributor to U.S. News and World Report’s The Student Loan Ranger blog Betsy was born and raised in Lowell, MA and currently lives in Plymouth, MA.

3. Under extenuating circumstances, such as illness, the two-week deadline may be waived. Such refunds may be authorized either by the Committee Chair or by the Treasurer. They may request whatever documentation they deem appropriate on a document.
