September 29, 2022

Wondering if you qualify for PSLF, or what the waiver that runs through Oct. 31 means for you? Read on for information from a PSLF webinar co-hosted by CSU-AAUP.

CSU-AAUP hosted a webinar on PSLF on Sept. 28 with the 4Cs and the Student Borrower Protection Center. Chris Hicks, a senior policy advisor at SBPC, gave a presentation on PSLF and the current waiver. You can watch the full webinar by clicking here. You can also access a short document with information on PSLF and the waiver here.

Borrowers who work in public service and make payments on their loans for 10 years can have the remainder of their debt will be forgiven through the PSLF program. The Biden Administration enacted a waiver for the PSLF program to make it easier for those who work in public service to get relief from student loans.

This waiver expires on October 31, 2022.
