TALLAHASSEE, FL – LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire – Attorney General Bill McCollum today released the following statement, commending the Florida Board of Governors for unanimously adopting the Florida Student Code of Conduct to address concerns in the student loan industry:
“I applaud the Board of Governors and Chancellor Mark Rosenberg for their dedication to Florida’s college students.

“The Florida Board of Governors is committed to ensuring that Florida’s public universities are the model of propriety when students are searching for the best available student loans. We are proud to extend the protections offered by the Florida Code.”
