Managing Your Student Loan Debt and Focusing on What Matters

Tuesday, October 28, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m., Room 303
The session, presented by nationally recognized student loan expert, Heather Jarvis, will cover important fundamentals including managing student loan repayment and accessing loan forgiveness opportunities.  Flexible repayment options and forgiveness provisions are available, but the details matter and it can be confusing to figure it out on your own.  This engaging and practical presentation will help you get a grip on your student loans by clearly explaining:

  • Options for managing student debt
  • Strategies for reducing your overall costs
  • Income-driven repayment plans
  • President Obama’s Pay As You Earn repayment plan
  • Loan forgiveness that is not tied to employment
  • Public Service Loan Forgiveness in Five Steps
  • Tax issues specific to student loan borrowers
  • Proposed changes to student loan debt relief programs
