Student Loan Discharge in the wake of ITT Technical Institutes Closure

In Uncategorized by Coolidge Wall

Opportunities to wash away federal student loans are few and far between. There are some limited opportunities, even outside of bankruptcy, to get relief from the burdens of federal student loans.

For students who attended ITT Technical Institutes (or any other college that has closed) and did not complete their program of study, they may qualify for a closed school loan discharge. There is (of course) a form, which you can find here. The form will need to be filled out and submitted to your loan servicer. If you don’t know who your loan servicer is, you can find that out here. Additional advice and recommendations for those impacted by the closure of ITT Technical Institutes is available at the U.S. Department of Education’s Blog and their ITT announcements page. If you need assistance reviewing your options, you can also contact an attorney.
