How To Qualify
You could qualify if your school falsely signed your name on your loan application or master promissory note without your permission and you did not benefit from the loan. You can only qualify if the loan money wasn't credited to your account, paid to you, or used to pay your tuition and fees.
What You'll Need
You will need documentation to prove both that you did not sign for the loans and that you did not benefit from them. For example, you may be asked for signature samples and school billing statements. Consult your servicer for the specific documentation they require when you submit your discharge application.
The following loans disbursed on or after July 1, 1986, may be eligible:
- Subsidized Stafford loans
- Unsubsidized Stafford loans
- Grad PLUS loans
- Parent PLUS loans (the student that the loan was borrowed for must be eligible)
Perkins loans are not eligible for this discharge.
