New waiver opportunity for US Dept. of Education loans

GCCC Information Services

The Garden City Community College financial aid office has a new waiver opportunity from the U.S. Department of Education (ED). On Oct. 6, the U.S. ED announced a temporary period during which borrowers may receive credit for payments that previously did not qualify for PSLF or TEPSLF. 

If an individual is employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization, they might be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

The PSLF Program forgives the remaining balance on a Direct Loans after having made 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer.
