Such an arrangement is defined as one between The Barber School and a lender under which the lender provides or issues loans to students attending The Barber School (or to the families/friends of such students), and The Barber School recommends the lender or the loan products of the lender. In exchange, the lender pays a fee or provides other material benefits, including revenue or profit sharing, to The Barber School or its agent.
