  •  Food, training, or information as part of training as long as that training contributes to the professional development of those individuals attending the training.
  •  Favorable terms and benefits to the student employed by the institution as long as those same terms are provided to all students at the institution.
  •  Entrance and exit counseling as long as the institution’s staff are in control and they do not promote the services of a specific lender.
  • Philanthropic contributions from a lender, guaranty agency or loan servicer unrelated to education loans.
  •  State education, grants, scholarships, or financial aid funds administered by or on behalf of the State.

 

Gifts to family members of Delta Tech employees shall be considered gifts to the employee if the gift was given with the knowledge of the employee and the employee has reason to believe the gift was given because of the position of the employee.
