If you or someone you know is struggling with student debt, there are free federal programs that can help reduce monthly payments and eventually lead to student loan forgiveness, but these lifeline programs are significantly under-enrolled. In an effort to help our members get access to these programs, United University Professions and the American Federation of Teachers are proud to host a Student Debt Clinic which will provide information on how to take advantage of them.
We will be offering two Student Debt Clinics on Thursday, April 11, 2019, in University Union West (UUW) Room 324 at the following times: 12pm–1:30pm and 4:30pm–6:00pm.
To attend a Student Debt Clinic, you must pre-register here: http://aft.to/StudentDebtClinicRSVP. From the “student debt clinic” drop-down menu, please select the UUP clinic that you are interested in attending – they are labeled “UUP [Campus Name] [time] [date].” In the affiliate field, type in the full name of our local (United University Professions).
Registration is first come, first serve, and we must cap attendance for a single clinic at 50 participants in order to ensure that we are able to provide maximum assistance to attendees. We will serve refreshments at the clinics.
Managing your student loan debt is the first step in taking on the inequities which plague our system of higher education. We look forward to seeing you, so register now!
