Teaching Forgiveness Loans

| 4 Comments | No Recommendations

M.Smith wrote in about trying to locate states that forgive student loans for new teachers. Jack Kronser (HR director in Colorado) writes: Canceling part or all of your student loans is called Loan Forgiveness and is done so at the state and federal level. It is often circumstantial and typically requires some sort of required service. At the federal level, you might go to: www.staffordloan.com, then look under loan forgiveness. Different states have their own programs as well. Here in Colorado, the program is called LIFT and is available to teachers who teach Math, Science, Special Education or ESL; see www.collegeinvest.org. I woud suggest starting to inquire at your state education department for more details on what is available.

I searching for loan forgiveness for adult ESL teachers.
Thanks,

hello, i have been searching high and low for a loan forgiveness program to help me repay my loan. Are there any such programs for veteran teachers who started teaching in september 1997?

If I switched my student loan to another company with a lower interst rate, also located in another state, is the new company responsible for allowing me a Teacher Forgiveness Loan? Thanks.
