TG Webinars

In spring 2015, certain schools in Texas will be required to provide their student borrowers seeking loans under the Texas B-On-Time (BOT) Loan Program with counseling in an effort to lower default rates and improve forgiveness rates. TG has worked with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to create in-person and online counseling modules for Texas schools to use to make sure that their BOT borrowers are informed about the program and maximize its benefits.

Join us on December 12, 2014, from 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Central Time, for "Texas B-On-Time Loan Resources: Help students achieve loan forgiveness and avoid default," a webinar on these counseling resources, so that your school can implement the required counseling by next semester.
