CCBC students may benefit from Student Loan Debt Relief plan

Aug 12, 2022

CCBC students may benefit from a recent announcement from the White House. In regards to student loans, $10,000 in federal student debt will be forgiven for most borrowers. Up to $20,000 will be canceled for Pell Grant recipients.

The relief is limited to Americans earning under $125,000 per year, or $250,000 for married couples or heads of households. Additionally, the payment pause has been extended on most federal student loans through Dec. 31, 2022. 

For details and to apply for loan forgiveness, visit the Federal Student Aid page hosted by the U.S. Department of Education. The deadline to apply is Dec. 21, 2023.
