Student Loan Forgiveness, Cancellation, and Discharge

While not of high interest to your students, Student Loans can be a big burden for teachers and educators.

This resource outlines how, in certain situations, you can have your federal student loan forgiven, canceled, or discharged. Qualifying criteria include your job, disability, the closure of your school, and other circumstances.
