Beware of Scams

Borrowers should know that the best source of information about when the application period opens will come directly from the Department of Education and Federal Student Aid.

You might be contacted by a company saying they will help you get loan discharge, forgiveness, cancellation, or debt relief for a fee. You never have to pay for help with your federal student aid. Make sure you work only with the U.S. Department of Education and our loan servicers, and never reveal your personal information or account password to anyone.
