Do you have student loan debt? Want to do something about it?

Education Minnesota’s Degrees, Not Debt program is rallying public support to decrease the cost of college and make it easier and cheaper to pay student loan debt.

We know that student loan debt makes life hard for many young educators, driving some away from teaching. Many see the cost of college as a barrier to getting into the profession in the first place. These challenges weaken the diversity and depth of our teaching corps.

We want to make sure you, as an educator, know about existing student loan forgiveness programs, how to find out if you're eligible and how to apply for them.
