If you are employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization, you might be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program (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. For more information on the program review the information on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness website.

If you would like to apply for the PSLF Program, print the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Certification and Application from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness website. Complete Sections 1 and 2. Submit the form along with the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Employer Verification Request to UW-Shared Services, Service Operations. Completed forms may be faxed to (608) 890-2327 or mailed to UW-Shared Services, Service Operations, 660 W. Washington Ave, Suite 201, Madison, WI 53703 (do not email forms). Additional details on the process can be found here.
