LRAP Eligibility Guidelines


Please see either our LRAP Handbook for the classes of 1997 – 2012 or our LRAP Handbook for the classes of 2013 and beyond for all LRAP terms, eligibility requirements, calculations, and instructions for application and forgiveness of LRAP loans depending on your class year.


Use our LRAP Calculator to determine if you are eligible for LRAP support before applying. For specific information about Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), please visit our PSLF page and review our PSLF Best Practices. Lastly, our latest LRAP presentation provides an overview of how the program works in tandem with income-driven repayment and PSLF.
