Public Student Loan Forgiveness Update

Today (10/6/21) the Department of Education shared some significant and positive changes coming to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. This is the result of several years of coordinated advocacy by a very large community with leadership from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Coalition, of which NASP is a member.  Please see the information available here: https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/USED/bulletins/2f61742.  Please share this widely with your networks.  As we learn more information, NASP will be sure to share it with you and our members and we will be updating our PSLF webpage accordingly.  Individual borrowers are encouraged to work with their loan servicer or contact the Office of Federal Student Aid with questions about their specific situation.
