For information regarding Loan forgiveness programs, see the below listed web sites.

In certain situations, you can have your Federal student loan forgiven, canceled, or discharged. Find out whether you qualify due to your job, disability, the closure of your school, or other circumstances. Some positions may qualify for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program
Forgives the remaining balance on your Federal Direct Loans after 120 qualifying payments (10 years).

Teacher Loan Forgiveness
Forgives up to $17,500 of your Direct or FFEL Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loans after 5 complete and consecutive years of teaching at a qualifying school.

Perkins Loan Cancellation for Teachers
Forgives up to 100% of your Federal Perkins Loan Program if you teach full-time at a low-income school, or if you teach certain subjects.

State-Sponsored Student Loan Forgiveness Programs
Tons of states offer loan forgiveness programs for teachers—especially if you teach in a high need area. The American Federation of Teachers has a great searchable database you can use to find state and local forgiveness programs you might qualify for.
