INVESTIGATE LOAN REPAYMENT AND FORGIVENESS

  1. If employed in Public Service, check to see if you are eligible for the Federal Loan Forgiveness program, enacted as a part of the 2007 College Cost Reduction Act. Watch for more information on the Higher Education Reauthorization and Opportunity Act, signed in August 2008, which introduced four new loan repayment and forgiveness programs for public service employees.
  2. Check if Income Based Repayment (IBR) is right for you. IBR is a new repayment plan, available beginning July 1, 2009, that will lower monthly loan payments for high-debt/low-income borrowers. IBR will also forgive remaining debt, if any, after 25 years of qualifying payments.
  3. Watch for Seton Hall Law's Public Interest Loan Repayment Program (PILRAP) application, available November 1 annually on Seton Hall Law's PILRAP Web site. The PILRAP program is available to attorneys with a not-for-profit organization that provides, directly or through public policy efforts, advocacy advancing the interests of those traditionally underserved by the legal system, or an organization (governmental or not-for-profit) that provides constitutionally mandated services to criminal defendants.
