In situations where an institution has to do something outside of its interest,
there is always a concession that needs to be made for their involvement
. Same reason charitable donations are tax deductible. I wont comment on the extent of the guarantee on the loans as I have not read up on the terms of the payout by the government.
it's not just a concession... they take ZERO risks and get all the "profits"...
they get their money back with interest, even if the student doesnt reimburse a dime on the loan.
