A Word of Caution: Student Loan Forgiveness Scams

Share this page:

Students, graduates, and families, please take caution of student loan forgiveness scams.

A wide-spread student loan forgiveness scam has been circulating with false claims of providing immediate relief from student loan debt, referencing universities such as North Park. The advertisements offer a false time-sensitive claim for full loan forgiveness. Although paying off student loan debt is a major concern for many college graduates, the U.S. Department of Education has not introduced a student loan forgiveness program that would wipe away a person’s debt.

North Park University urges students, graduates, and their families to always take caution of too-good-to-be-true offers and never share personal information with un-verified sources.

If you have concerns or are unsure of a possible scam, please visit the Federal Trade Commission site for more information.
