Student Debt Relief
Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration have announced loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell-Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other loan borrowers. To be eligible borrower’s annual income must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/head of households). If the U.S. Department of Education doesn’t have your income data – or if you don’t know if the U.S. Department of Education has your income data, the Administration will launch a simple application in the coming weeks. Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account online at https://studentaid.gov/.
Please visit https://studentaid.gov/debt-relief-announcement/ for the most up-to-date information.
If you would like to be notified by the U.S. Department of Education when the application is open, please sign up on the Department of Education subscription page at https://www.ed.gov/subscriptions.

Important Information for Parents
If you are a parent calling to inquire about specific account information for your son or daughter, please have them on the line with you. If this is not possible, we will be able to speak about general information or processes only. Since educational records are protected from third-party disclosure by federal law, if it becomes necessary to get into account-specific details we will be pleased to refer you to a specialist that can determine if information can be released. Referrals are typically responded to within 1 to 3 business days.
