Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)

The PSLF Program is a federal program that forgives the remaining balance on a student’s Direct Loans after the student has made 120 qualifying monthly payments.

The University of Florida is a state government institution and public university that meets the federal requirement of “public service organization”. UF employees may qualify for this program.

Who Qualifies?

  • UF employees must have a total of 30hrs Full-Time Equivalency (.75 FTE) or more and be paid directly from the University of Florida
    • UF employees are defined by paid appointments including but not limited to staff, faculty, OPS, and student employment
    • Arrangements that are not eligible for PSLF verifications include: fellowships and lump-sum records; in addition to any unpaid arrangement including but not limited to courtesy faculty, volunteer assignments, etc.
  • Part-time employees (below 30hrs at UF) may be eligible to apply for the PSLF Program only if they have a combined total of 30 hours with two qualifying employers. The combination of a total of 30 hours is considered full-time by the Department of Education.

Note: We are unable to verify employment for UF-related entities such as Shands/UF Health (Gainesville and Jacksonville), University Athletic Association (UAA), Florida Fresh Dining (Chartwells), UF Bookstore (Follett), etc. Employees of those entities must work directly with their HR departments on confirming employment.

How to submit the form?

Qualified employees can utilize the PSLF Help Tool to generate an electronic form with the Office of Federal Student Aid under the U.S. Department of Education.

To prevent delays with your form’s approval, please ensure the start and end dates, average hours worked, and other information is accurate prior to submission.
