In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, (Privacy Act), the Chief Operating Officer for Federal Student Aid of the U.S. Department of Education (Department) publishes this notice of a new system of records entitled the Common Services for Borrowers (CSB) system (18-11-16).

The CSB system will contain records of an individual's loan, grant, or scholarship and of transactions performed by the Department to carry out these activities.
