PSLF Waiver

Ascendium guarantees Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) loans, which normally do not qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF).

However, the Department of Education recently announced a limited time waiver allowing FFELP borrowers to receive PSLF credit for past periods of repayment that would otherwise not qualify for PSLF.

To take advantage of this waiver, FFELP borrowers need to consolidate their FFELP loans into the Direct Loan program AND submit a PSLF Certification and Application Form before October 31, 2022.

Explore whether this opportunity is right for you by logging into Federal Student Aid’s PSLF Help Tool. You will need an FSA ID to log in, and can create one if you have not already.
