College Visions was proud to host Senator Sheldon Whitehouse as he highlighted the upcoming Public Service Loan Forgiveness waiver deadline (Oct 31). Thank you Senator for being an advocate for access and affordability! And, thank you to the speakers who shared their personal PSLF stories!
Established in 2007, the PSLF program provides a path to loan forgiveness for people working in public sector and non-profit jobs in fields such as education, healthcare, and social work. After making 120 payments, PSLF participants can have the balance of their student loans forgiven.
For low-income, first-generation college graduates like CV’s alums, the PSLF program provides an important option. CV alum Jennifer Recinos (Brandeis University Class of 2013) spoke at the event and shared that participation in PSLF has allowed her to pursue a career where she can give back as Associate Director of First Generation Experience at Rhode Island School of Design.
