FREE Student Debt Clinics for IFT Members:

We will have options as to which debt clinic that best meets your needs.  

Full Clinic - This 90-minute program will take you through everything you need to know to manage your student debt. The program will introduce Income Driven Repayment (IDR) Plans, Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), legislative updates, and next steps for you.

PSLF Clinic This 45-minute program will dive deeper into Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) and answer questions you have about the forms. This program is geared towards people who have already entered into an Income Drive Repayment plan and need help with the PSFL process.

Q & A ClinicThis open session is to ask specific questions about your situation. Understand that this is not a one-on-one session. There is no formal presentation to this session; it is targeting those who are already in IDR and/or PSLF plans but need answers.
