In order to request teacher loan forgiveness, you must complete a Teacher Loan Forgiveness Application. Both you and your school's chief administrative officer (usually your human resources official, principal, assistant principal, district superintendent, or other school or educational service agency official) must complete the form.
If the loan for which you are seeking forgiveness is guaranteed by TG, please mail your application to:
Attn: Customer Assistance
P.O. Box 83100
Round Rock, TX 78683-3100
If your student loan is guaranteed by another guarantor or held by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), you can determine the appropriate address for your forgiveness application by viewing a summary of your loans on the National Student Loan Data System (your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID is required). Click on the number next to the corresponding loan to view the loan details. There you can find the loan type and contact information for your current servicer, loan holder, and guarantor. Your application should be submitted to your current servicer. If there is only one address listed in your loan details record, please submit your application to that address.
If the loan for which you are seeking forgiveness was guaranteed by TG, once your application is complete, you can submit it directly to TG for review. TG will make a determination of your eligibility within 45 days of receipt of the application.
- If you are approved for loan forgiveness, TG will notify you of this approval and send a payment (for the forgiveness amount for which you qualify) to your loan holder.
- If you do not qualify for loan forgiveness, TG will send you notification of the denial explaining why you do not qualify.
