Public service loan forgiveness programs
To encourage students to pursue certain careers, the federal government has created many programs that forgive some or all of a borrower's federal student loan debt. This means that certain careers in government, the military and education, including certain teaching jobs, may qualify you for loan forgiveness. Forgiven debt may be treated as taxable income—consult a tax professional.
The specifics of the programs may change frequently. For the latest information about loan forgiveness, visit the Federal Student Aid website.
