Additional Information

Teacher Loan Forgiveness

The Federal (Title One) Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program:

If you and your school qualify, this program may provide loan forgiveness for eligible Federal Direct Loans. This is a separate program requiring separate forms and processes. The U.S. Department of Education will determine your eligibility for this program. Georgetown College is not responsible to verify your eligibility for this or any other program. Please do not base your enrollment on this program as it can be difficult to ensure qualification for Government Programs, which are subject to reform and funding changes.

You must call 1-800-4-FED-AID to verify your eligibility or visit https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/teacher for more information.

The TEACH Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides up to $4,000 a year in grant assistance to students who plan to teach in certain high-need fields. In order to be eligible for a grant, a student must submit a FAFSA form and sign a Declaration Sheet to agree to serve as a full-time teacher at certain low-income schools and within certain high-need fields for at least four academic years within eight years after completing (or ceasing enrollment in) the course of study for which the candidate received a grant.
