You may qualify for forgiveness of your remaining Federal Direct Student loan through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. You must have made the equivalent of 120 qualifying monthly payments under an accepted repayment plan while working full-time for an eligible employer. The University of Puget Sound (Puget Sound) is a qualifying employer.



Puget Sound faculty and staff interested in participating in the PSLF program can manage the process by completing the required forms annually and requesting that Puget Sound HR/Benefits (benefits@pugetsound.edu) verify your university employment for continued eligibility in the PSLF program. Please visit the Federal Student Aid website for instructions on how to complete your PSLF form.

Please visit Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) to determine if you are eligible to participate in the PSLF program, or if you have other questions related to the PSLF program.
