Loan Forgiveness Programs

The purpose of loan forgiveness programs is to encourage students to pursue employment in certain occupations. Under some circumstances, the federal or state government may cancel or "forgive" all or part of an educational loan.

The amount of loan forgiveness varies depending on the specific guidelines of each program. In most cases, loan forgiveness is applicable only to federal student loans (i.e., Federal Direct Stafford and Perkins Loans). Find out more at:
