Forgivable Education Loans

Forgivable education loans are offered by the State of North Carolina and can be “forgiven” by working in an approved professional position. If you do not qualify for loan forgiveness (you did not graduate from the program on the degree level for which you received financial assistance, or you do not work in a qualifying position in the State of North Carolina) you must repay the loan in cash.

National Board Certification Loans

National Board Certification Loans help eligible teachers pay the assessment fee for National Board Certification. These are non-forgivable loans that must be repaid in cash.
