Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered a full-time classroom teacher?
    Teaching a minimum of four hours a day in the eligible subject. 

I am participating in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Does this disqualify me from any loan repayment program?
    No. This program requires a person to make 120 payments before the loan is potentially forgiven. The verification process does not take place until after all 120 payments have been made. A participant may complete the state program before all 120 payments have been made on their federal loans.

When will I receive my award?
    The annual award will be mailed to the lender after you have completed each year of service, and all documentation has been received and reviewed. We cannot send payments electronically or via ACH, so please allow time for the check to be mailed and processed by your lender.
