The Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program is intended to encourage individuals to enter and continue in the teaching profession.
Under this program, if you teach full-time for five complete and consecutive academic years in certain elementary and
secondary schools and educational service agencies that serve low-income families, and meet other qualifications, you may be
eligible for forgiveness of up to a combined total of $17,500 on your Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans and your Subsidized
and Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans. If you have PLUS loans only, you are not eligible for this type of forgiveness.
