How do I learn more about the federal loan forgiveness program?
Note: On November 10, 2022, a court order blocked the Federal Student Loan Debt Relief program. Please visit studentaid.gov to stay up-to-date with the latest information.
The student debt relief is a one-time, pandemic-related loan cancellation provided by the Department of Education for federal student aid borrowers. The relief includes current students and borrowers who have federally-held undergraduate, graduate, and Parent PLUS loans that have been fully disbursed by June 30, 2022.
The application for student loan cancellation is now open and can be accessed through the Federal Student Aid website. Eligible borrowers will have until December 31, 2023, to submit their application for loan forgiveness.
Students can check their student aid history, including loan balances and Pell Grant recipient status, by logging in to their federal student aid account on studentaid.gov.
