Public Service Loan Forgiveness

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) was created to encourage borrowers to enter into public service work or the nonprofit sector by forgiving their eligible federal student loan balance. With confusion swirling about the availability and terms of promised PSLF for millions of student loan borrowers, American Student Assistance’s Center for Consumer Advocacy has launched a national awareness campaign, 10 Years To Zero Debt, to educate borrowers about PSLF and boost enrollment in the program.

Here you will learn more about eligibility requirements, including eligible loans, payments, employers, and how to apply. As a nonprofit with 60+ years’ experience advocating for students and borrowers, American Student Assistance® (ASA) is providing this information free of charge. All eligible borrowers are encouraged to download the form from our site and apply for PSLF directly with the U.S. Department of Education by using the address in Section 7 of the form.

The Center for Consumer Advocacy will also host free webinars and live events to ensure all eligible borrowers understand the PSLF requirements and can have their questions answered. See the schedule and register here.
