Federal Student Debt Relief Announcement

The Federal Government released information about a student debt relief plan on August 24. This includes:

  • The final extension of the student loan repayment pause through December 31st, 2022,
  • Providing targeted debt relief to low- and middle-income families, and
  • Making the student loan system more manageable for current and future borrowers

We are currently awaiting further guidance from the Department of Education. You can find more information about the plan at studentaid.gov/debt-relief-announcement

September 6 Update: The Department of Education now includes a helpful FAQ regarding debt relief. 

Important Note: The debt relief only applies to loans disbursed by June 30, 2022. This means loans for the 2022-2023 school year do not qualify for this program.
