Students and grads have important decisions to make about managing their student debt.  Flexible repayment options and forgiveness provisions are available, but the details matter and it can be confusing to figure it out on your own.

In this webinar Heather Jarvis, Student Loan Expert, breaks down the process step-by-step, helping viewers:

  • to understand what kind of loans they have and why it makes a difference
  • to evaluate income-based repayment and other options
  • to learn simple steps to qualify for public service loan forgiveness
