Student Loan Forgiveness for TRIO Professionals

posted May 21, 2012, 10:55 AM by Matthew Hyden
Dr. Deborah Saunders-White, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Higher Education Programs, announced today during her call-in update at the SAEOPP Board of Directors Meeting that she has been influential in classifying TRIO Professionals as public servants for federal student loan forgiveness eligibility.  Approval for loan forgiveness is approved through individual loan servicers, and she notes that TRIO Professionals should contact their loan servicer to begin the loan forgiveness process.  She noted that if any TRIO Professionals have issue beginning the process, because it was just approved, he or she should contact the loan servicer ombudsman.

Once more information is published, SAEOPP will share information with the membership, and SAEOPP plans to host a webinar sometime in the coming months once more information is released from the Federal Student Aid organization.
