News & Announcements

Biden Administration Extends Loan Repayment and Interest Pause on Federal Student Loans

President Biden announced Federal Forbearance halting loan repayment and interest collection on federal student loans. The Forbearance was set to expire starting January 1st 2023, but it is now extended through June 30th 2023. The extension is due to the paused debt forgiveness plan that is stuck in federal court. If the loan forgiveness plan is allowed to proceed borrowers will have 60 days from implementation until loans go into repayment. If the program is still on hold as of June 30th, loan repayment start in July. For more details view the Department of Education Press Release

UPDATE: Biden Debt Cancellation Temporarily Blocked - Applications not Currently being Accepted

President Biden’s Debt Cancellation program is temporarily blocked by the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The program is on hold while the court considers a motion from six Republican-led states to block the program. The White House has stopped accepting applications at this time. If the program is allowed to proceed Pell Grant recipients can receive up to $20,000 in debt forgiveness and $10,000 for non-Pell recipients. Individuals who made less than $125,000 in 2021 or 2020 or families that made less than $250,000 in 2021 or 2020 can qualify for the debt cancellation. If the court order is lifted, the deadline to submit the application is Dec. 31, 2023. More information on the announcement can be found here
