Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)

The PSLF Program forgives the remaining balance on your Direct Loans after you have made 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer. Under this program, CSU employees may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance due to their Direct Loan Program loans if they meet the criteria of the program.

Program Information

Program information is available on the Department of Education's Federal Student Aid website.

Employment Certification

Payroll Services will complete Section 3 and 4 to verify employment is with a public service organization. Original Employment Certification forms must be submitted to our office in Mountain Hall, Suite A. Completed forms will be returned to the employee.

It is the responsibility of the PSLF applicant to submit the application, and all required paperwork, to the U.S. Department of Education in order to qualify for the PSLF Program. The U.S. Department of Education, not the CSU, reviews the applications and makes the determination of eligibility for the PSLF Program.
