Federal Student Loan Forgiveness Program

Cooper University Health Care team members may be eligible for student loan forgiveness under a federal government program known as Public Student Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). Team members are eligible to participate in this program if they are a full-time team member, as specified below:

  • Full-time team member, worked at Cooper or qualifying employer for 10 years while making qualifying loan payments; or have made payments under a Qualifying Repayment Plan.

There are temporary changes through October 2022 that allow for participation even if a loan would not have qualified previously. To learn more about this program and whether you would be eligible, please visit the links below.
