Over 12 million people in the United States are struggling to make their monthly student loan payments, and millions more see economic and personal opportunities pass as they prioritize paying down their debt. Does this sound like you or someone you know?
Many of these people may qualify for free federal programs that can help reduce their monthly payments and eventually lead to student loan forgiveness, but these lifeline programs are significantly under-enrolled. In an effort to help our members get access to these programs, United University Professions and the American Federation of Teachers are proud to host a Student Debt Clinic which will provide information on how to enroll in Income-Driven Repayment plans and Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
We will be offering virtual members-only Student Debt Clinics on the following dates:
- Wednesday, May 11, 2022 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM via webinar.
- Wednesday, May 25, 2022 from 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM via webinar.
To attend one of the virtual members-only Student Debt Clinics, you must register online.
From the “student debt clinic” dropdown menu, select the UUP clinic that you are interested in attending.
In the affiliate field, type in the full name of our local (United University Professions), and it will autofill after a few keystrokes.
Registration is first come, first serve, and we must cap attendance for a single clinic at 125 participants in order to ensure that we are able to provide maximum assistance to attendees. Registration will close 48 hours prior to the virtual clinic. Webinar login information will be provided prior to the clinic to all who register.
Managing your student loan debt is the first step in taking on the inequities which plague our system of higher education, and we look forward to seeing you at the virtual Student Debt Clinic and working together to find a collective solution to the problems of student debt and college affordability!
