The Center for Consumer Advocacy at American Student Assistance is offering a free “train the trainer” session for Providers' Council members to learn the details of the federal Department of Education’s Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program (PSLF). PSLF forgives the balance of eligible borrower’s federal student loans once they have made 120 qualifying payments while working for an eligible employer. Many member employees with federal student loans could potentially be eligible for this program. This session will take place on Friday, April 28th, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Get involved by checking out some of the many interesting trainings and events being put on by the Council and our members.
