Teacher Loan Forgiveness
This program is intended to encourage individuals to pursue a career in teaching. Under this plan, eligible borrowers can have up to $17,500 of their Federal Direct Stafford loans forgiven after 5 years of teaching full-time at an eligible elementary or secondary school. This includes both subsidized and unsubsidized loans but is not available for borrowers holding only PLUS loans.
An eligible school must meet the following requirements:
- The school is in a qualified, Title I district
- The school is listed in the Designated Low-Income Schools Directory
- More than 30% of the school’s students qualify for Title I services
Note: If a school qualifies as eligible for at least one year of a teacher’s service, the teacher may count it towards all 5 years of service
In addition to the federal loan forgiveness programs, borrowers may also be eligible for student loan discharge or other forgiveness options and Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs). LRPs are similar to forgiveness programs except borrowers receive a stipend to apply to their student loans, which may not cover the remaining balance.
Borrowers of Parent PLUS loans may also qualify for PSLF but must first consolidate through a Direct Consolidation Loan and select Income-Contingent Repayment.
