You may be able to forgive the remaining balance on direct loans

Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) is a free federal program that may forgive the remaining balance on direct loans for those who complete 120 qualifying monthly payments under a repayment plan and 10 years of full-time service from a qualifying employer at the time of application and forgiveness.

Explore the PSLF help tool. To interact with this database, you need UVA’s Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN/EIN): 54-6001796.

The government program is complex. However, there are several free tools available to help individuals navigate student loan forgiveness. Please see this document for more information.

There is a requirement for the employer (UVA) to confirm your employment, Employer FEIN, address, employment begin date at UVA, that you are a full-time employee who works at least 40 hours per week on average, and that we are a governmental organization.

A generic version of this form can be downloaded through a link on the PSLF website, or it can be generated with your information when you log into the website.

When ready, please send this form to for the employer signature requirement.

Please note: This is not a UVA program it is a federal one, and it is not guaranteed.
