Teacher Loan Forgiveness: If you teach full-time for five complete and consecutive academic years in a low-income elementary
school, secondary school, or educational service agency, you may be eligible for forgiveness of up to $17,500 on your Direct
Loan or FFEL program loans. See StudentAid.gov/teach-forgive for more
information and a form you can fill out when you have completed your teaching service.
Learn more about the eligibility requirements and full details of the Teacher Loan Forgiveness
Program at the Office of Federal Student Aid website.
* Additional eligibility requirements may apply
After you complete the five-year teaching requirement, you can apply. Please complete, sign and return the Teacher Loan
Forgiveness Application. It can be found on the Forms
page. You will need the chief administrative officer of the school at which you performed your qualifying teaching service
to complete the certification section.
