Student Debt Relief
Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration have announced loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell-Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other loan borrowers. To be eligible borrower’s annual income must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/head of households).
Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account online at studentaid.gov. Please visit studentaid.gov/debt-relief-announcement/ for the most up-to-date information.

For current Jayhawks
Receiving aid is a multistep process — one we can help guide you through. The first step is to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year, which is key to obtaining state and federal dollars toward your education. Once you’ve accepted any awarded funds, we can help apply it to your costs.
