Curious about One-time Federal Student Loan Debt Relief?

The best place to get information about a full or partial discharge of up to $20,000 in Federal Student Loans is the Federal Student Aid website. You can apply now until Dec. 31, 2023 for a one-time waiver for Federal Loans taken before June 30, 2022. Any new loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2022, aren’t eligible for debt relief.

Financial Aid Offices across the nation manage student loans while students are in school. Once the loan period ends and/or the student leaves school, one of a few loan servicers handles the repayment. Federal Student Aid handles loan forgiveness/discharge. Please contact your loan servicer for more information.

Changes due to COVID-19

Check Emergency Resources for small emergency grants and short-term loans available to help students through emergency situations. The rule limiting students to one emergency grant or loan per academic year is on a case by case basis.

If you’re having financial difficulty, contact the Financial Aid Office right away. If you or your family has lost income, you may be eligible for additional aid. Email your concerns and questions to finaid@evergreen.edu.

Emergency Funds

Any student that needs funds before the receipt of their refund can request an emergency grant or loan.

Visit Financial Aid Emergency Resources for the application, and for more information about the many resources available to students.

When submitting an emergency grant or loan application, make sure to ask about the timeline for receiving funds. Our goal is to deliver funds in two days or less, but the schedule may vary due to the holidays.

Keep your mailing address current

Any student that moved during Fall Quarter should update their mailing address through my.evergreen.edu. Doing so now ensures all mail will be delivered to the correct location.
