Limited Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Waiver Resources

Stakeholder Resources: The Limited PSLF Waiver

On Oct. 6, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education announced temporary changes to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. Under normal PSLF rules, borrowers must make 120 payments on a Direct Loan while on a qualifying repayment plan and employed by a qualifying public service employer. Now, for a limited period of time, federal student loan borrowers may receive credit for past periods of repayment that would otherwise not qualify for PSLF. The limited PSLF waiver ends Oct. 31, 2022.

Time is running out! You can help us spread the word.

We'll update this page regularly with resources about the limited PSLF waiver as they become available. You can use these resources to communicate with borrowers and stakeholders about how they can take advantage of this opportunity.

Note: These resources are for you to use in your messaging. Please do not point students, parents, or borrowers to this website for PSLF information. Instead, send them to StudentAid.gov/pslfwaiver.
