Tip #5: If you volunteer or have a job that helps eradicate hunger, homelessness, poverty, crime or illnesses, or you teach in a socioeconomically deprived school, you may qualify to have your student loans forgiven.

Working professionals:
The professionals who could have their loans forgiven include:

  • police officers
  • lawyers
  • teachers
