Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program
Tuesday, July 26, 2022 - 10:00

The Public Student Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program is always open for applications, but the deadline to take advantage of a temporary waiver that expands the program is October 31, 2022. 

To help you learn about and use this program, we have compiled the following resources:

What is the PSLF?

The PSLF program allows you to have the remaining balance of your student loans forgiven after you have made 120 qualifying monthly payments while working full time for a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization. Find out more on this government website

The University’s employee financial counseling vendor, LSS Financial, shares more information about the temporary waiver in this blog post.

Am I eligible for the PSLF? 

Qualifying for the PSLF depends on what kind of loans you have. The temporary waiver allows more people to qualify for loan forgiveness. 

To help you determine if you are eligible, LSS Financial is offering several webinars specifically for University employees ahead of the October 31 deadline. The webinars fill up fast, so reserve your space today! If a webinar is full, you will not be able to register for it.

If the session you’d like to attend is full, you can schedule an individual consultation with LSS to discuss your situation.

Who should I contact to get my PSLF form signed?

Send your form via email to [email protected] to request a signature for the employer verification section.
