Do Kent State employees qualify for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program?

Employees of Kent State University may qualify for participation in the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.

Under this program, full-time employees can apply for forgiveness from certain types of student loans, possibly reducing or eliminating their debt. For additional information and forms, please access the loan forgiveness website at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/public-service.

Please contact your loan servicer to determine your eligibility under this program. Once your paperwork is completed, forward the documents for employment verification to HR Records (for staff members) or Academic Personnel (for faculty). Both offices are located in Heer Hall.

At Kent State, we want to honor the celebration of our Native American and Indigenous culture by developing a calendar encompassing all the university events that are relevant to Native American Heritage Month. The Native American Heritage Month Planning Committee is welcoming university divisions, departments and student organizations to begin submitting their programming, activities and events to the University Events Calendar to be featured on the Native American Heritage Month Website.

Open Enrollment is from Oct. 16, through Nov. 3. Each year in the fall, benefits-eligible employees may select and make changes to their health coverage plans based on their needs and the needs of their family. Outside a qualifying life event, this will be the only window during which such changes may be made. Click to learn more, and to see how to access the Open Enrollment Portal.
