Public Service Loan Forgiveness

Are you a current borrower who is considering a career in Public Service or an alumni currently working in Public Service?

If so, you may qualify for forgiveness of any remaining balance on your eligible federal student loans thanks to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

This program was created by Congress to encourage individuals to enter and continue to work full-time in public service jobs. Under the PSLF program, borrowers may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance due on their eligible federal student loans after they have made 120 payments on those loans under certain qualifying repayment plans while employed full-time by certain public service employers.

Interested? Review the requirements of the PSLF program at today to learn more! For more information see Federal Student Aid’s PSLF website.
