Join Student Debt Crisis for their free Tele-Town Hall: COVID-19 Student Loan Relief and Policy Updates on Saturday, April  11, 2020 at 11AM PT.

In addition to the fear of COVID-19 itself, virtually all of us are living with tremendous economic uncertainty. This is particularly true for the millions of Americans already burdened by student loan debt.  

In the weeks since this extraordinary crisis began, we have heard from thousands of borrowers who are confused and anxious about their student loan payments. We hear you, and we want to help

Sign up for the Tele-Town Hall here.

On March 27, President Trump signed into law the CARES Act. The $2 trillion stimulus package includes at least some relief for people with federally-held student loans. We want to help you understand these recent changes.

One of the provisions of the CARES Act requires student loan servicers to update borrowers about their accounts no later than Friday, April 10. We will be ready to address your resulting questions at our Tele-Town Hall the very next day.

Sign up for the discussion here. Then, join “Tele-Town Hall: COVID-19 Student Loan Relief and Policy Updates” on Saturday at 11AM PST.

Experienced and trusted experts and consumer advocates will explain the relief that is available to those struggling to afford their student loans. Save your seat here.
