The Department of Education announced a new process for federal student loan borrowers to be reconsidered for loan forgiveness under a temporary expansion of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program.

The Department of Education is calling this program the Temporary Expanded PSLF (TEPSLF).  This opportunity is only available on a first-come, first-served basis until the $350 million has been allocated or other criteria are met. The Department will reconsider eligibility for the TEPSLF opportunity using an expanded list of qualifying repayment plans, which includes the Graduated Repayment Plan, Extended Repayment Plan, Consolidated Standard Repayment Plan, and Consolidated Graduated Repayment Plan.
