Students and graduates 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. Heather Jarvis knows how to break it down step-by-step so it makes sense once and for all.
From this presentation, you will be able to:
- determine what kind of loans you have and why it makes a difference;
- evaluate income-based repayment and other options; and
- learn simple steps to qualify for public service loan forgiveness.
Heather Jarvis, a former capital defense attorney with law school debt, now dedicates her expertise to helping student loan borrowers make better decisions so that higher education can be a reality for all – not just those who can afford it.
