Loan Code of Conduct

A financial aid professional is to always maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out his or her responsibilities, specifically including all dealings with entities involved in any manner in student financial aid, regardless of whether such entities are involved in a government sponsored, subsidized, or regulated activity.  Because of this reason, Meridian Community College abides by the following code of conduct.

A Financial Aid Professional should:

  • Refrain from taking any action for his or her personal benefit

  • Refrain from taking any action he or she believes is contrary to law, regulation, or the best interests of the students and parents he or she serves

  • Ensure that the information he or she provides is accurate, unbiased, and does not reflect any preference arising from actual or potential personal gain

  • Be objective in making decisions and advising his or her institution regarding relationships with any entity involved in any aspect of student financial aid

  • Refrain from soliciting or accepting anything of other than nominal value from any entity (other than an institution of higher education or a governmental entity such as the U.S. Department of Education) involved in the making, holding, consolidating or processing of any student loans, including anything of value (including reimbursement of expenses) for serving on an advisory board or as a part of a training activity of or sponsored by any such entity

  • Disclose to his or her institution, in such manner as his or her institution may prescribe, any involvement with or interest in any aspect of student financial aid.

By following this code of conduct, the financial aid office is committed to making sure our students receive the best possible experience while attending Meridian Community College.  If at any time anyone feels that this code of conduct has been violated, please contact the Director of Financial Aid Director or the Dean of Student Services.
