Your questions, answered

Public service workers and healthcare professionals can be eligible for student loan forgiveness—meaning you are no longer required to repay some, or all, of your loan—because you provide a public service. Some programs include:

  • Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)
  • Federal Perkins Loan Cancellation (FPLC)
  • Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

These repayment plans set your monthly student loan payment to an affordable amount based on your income and family size. They include:

  • Pay As You Earn Repayment Plan (PAYE Plan)
  • Income-Based Repayment Plan (IBR Plan)
  • Income-Contingent Repayment Plan (ICR Plan)
