8 on Your Side: Program Offers Student Loan Forgiveness

LAS VEGAS - Student loan debt often means delayed dreams for many college graduates. 8 on Your Side found a program that could forgive your student loan debt, if you qualify.

In Nevada, the average student loan debt is more than $19,000. For many graduates, that much debt can become a financial hardship. A little-known program could make that debt disappear, however.

It's called the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. The program is available to college graduates who work for a non-profit organization or who work in the public sector.

In order to qualify, borrowers must make on-time payments on their federal student loans for at least 10 years, make those payments under a qualifying repayment plan and must be working full-time at a qualifying public service organization. Only payments made after October 1, 2007 qualify.
