Feds Visit College 

Local Matters: Middlebury College

U.S. Department of Education looking at Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY - The feds are investigating the financial-aid operations of universities across the country, including Vermont's Middlebury College. Officials are on the lookout for institutions of higher learning that have directed students to particular lenders in exchange for financial kickbacks.

DOE officials spent two days at Middlebury last month gathering information on the school's student loan practices, confirms Associate Vice President for Finance and Controller Patrick Norton. In an email to Seven Days, Norton says there were no findings to report from the August 22-23 visit, and that a final report on the information gathered during the visit may or may not be issued.

Jane Glickman, a DOE spokeswoman, would not confirm or deny the visit to Middlebury. "We can't talk about ongoing monitoring issues while the case is open," she says.
