Public Service Loan Forgiveness
Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress created the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program to encourage individuals to enter and continue to work full-time in public service jobs. Under this program, borrowers may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance due on their eligible federal student loans after they have made 120 payments on those loans under certain repayment plans while employed full time by certain public service employers. Click here for more information on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.
Part-time employment, both on and off campus, is available as an alternative or supplement to a financial aid package. To assist students in locating such employment, the Office of Student Financial Services has created Hoyaworks, an online clearinghouse for part-time and temporary job listings on campus and for local businesses and organizations.
Teaching and Research Assistantships
One-semester research and teaching assistantships are available to first and second year MSFS students in various departments and offices. These assistantships involve approximately 15 hours per week of work as research assistants. These positions are advertised on Blackboard, an on-line bulletin board, and are available to students only after matriculation in September.
