Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program

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 your debt.  For additional information and forms, 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 you have your paperwork completed, please forward the documents for employment verification to HR Records (Staff Members) OR Academic Personnel (Faculty). Both offices are located in Heer Hall.
