Is everyone eligible for student loan forgiveness?

No. Student loan forgiveness can only be granted for federal loans and allows you to have some or all of your student loan debt forgiven. This means you will not have to pay the full amount of the loan. Typically, student loan forgiveness is earned by either working in public service or by making payments through a payment plan (contingent on your income) for a set period of time.
To find out more about qualifying for student loan forgiveness, visit the official Federal Student Aid website.
