Public Service Loan Forgiveness
The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program forgives the remaining balance on your Direct Loans after you have made 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer. For more information about this program can be found on Federal Student Aid's website. Employees of Coastal Carolina University who are interested in submitting documentation to certify their employment status should visit HREO’s website.
On April 6, 2022, the US Department of Education announced the “Fresh Start” initiative to help eligible borrowers in default. Borrowers with eligible loans may be able to temporarily regain student aid and credit reporting benefits, and get the opportunity to get out of default to maintain those benefits long-term. Borrowers can read the announcement of this initiative from Federal Student Aid. Student and parent borrowers who are notified by the US Department of Education of their possible eligibility or who believe that they will be eligible for federal aid under this initiative should reach out to a financial aid counselor at (843) 349-2313 or firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps.
