Tuition reimbursement and loan repayment programs
Tuition assistance benefits are available through many employers. If you qualify for your company's tuition assistance benefits, you could strengthen your job security. Be sure to contact the Human Resource Department to apply for these benefits.
There are many different types of loan repayment programs available to substantially assist in repaying your education loans in exchange for service. The federal student loan programs permit agencies to assist you in repaying your student loans as a recruitment or retention incentive for candidates or current employees of an agency. These programs are intended to assist employers to attract or retain highly qualified employees. Make sure you review all the eligibility requirements involved with your specific program.
Don't forget--if you have Federal Direct, Direct PLUS, Stafford, PLUS, or Consolidation Loans, you may be eligible for federal loan cancellation, forgiveness, and discharge programs.
