LRAP Application Forms

Please read the How to Apply section of this website before submitting an application. If you have further questions about the LRAP Application, please review our LRAP application definitions and FAQs.


We encourage you to use our LRAP Calculator to estimate your LRAP eligibility and level of support prior to applying for LRAP funding. Please review our LRAP guidelines to learn more about the application and forgiveness processes, including the specific calculations we use to determine support and forgiveness.


Application for LRAP (required for new and continuing LRAP applicants to receive a new LRAP loan)

  • Before starting your LRAP application, review the Checklist here
  • Submitting an application is required to receive initial and renewal LRAP loans

Employer Verification Form (required for both LRAP Applications and Forgiveness Applications to certify your income at the beginning and end of a contract)

  • Please upload a completed and recently signed (no more than 40 days in the past) form into the online application

Forgiveness Application (determines how much of your previous LRAP loan is eligible to be forgiven, i.e. cancelled)

  • Before starting your forgiveness application, review the Checklist here
  • Submitting a forgiveness application within 30 days of the end of each LRAP contract is required
  • We process forgiveness applications on a quarterly basis, so it may take a few weeks to hear back from us about your application.

Conflict of Interest Form (may be required as part of the vendor registration process)

  • If you answer “yes” to any of the Conflict of Interest questions during the new vendor registration process, you will be required to complete the Conflict of Interest Form.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) (to receive your LRAP funds more quickly)

  • This is a different EFT account than the one you had as a student. The account you had as a student cannot be used for LRAP award.
  • If you are a first-time applicant, we recommend signing up for EFT during the vendor registration process.

Return the form via email to For questions related to EFT, please email A photo or scan of a voided check is required for checking accounts; for “checkless” accounts, please include a document showing your bank account number and routing number.

PSLF Form (through Federal Student Aid) 

  • Please submit this form to the Department of Education/FedLoan Servicing (not the Berkeley Law Financial Aid Office).
  • You should submit this form to FedLoan Servicing annually, and at least every time you change jobs, if you plan to pursue PSLF. The form will indicate you’d like to have your employment and payments checked to see if they qualify for PSLF.
  • If your loan servicer is not FedLoan Servicing, your loans will be transferred to FedLoan Servicing after initially submitting this form. During this time you may be unable to make payments on your loans for 1-2 months. Please notify us if you plan to submit this form to FedLoan Servicing.
  • See our PSLF page for more information.
