Public Service Loan Forgiveness in Five Easy Steps – Join Us for Lunch on Friday, Jan. 30

Heather Jarvis: Public Service Loan Forgiveness in Five Easy Steps
Friday, January 30, from noon-1:15 p.m. in the Francis Auditorium

Lunch will be served. RSVP on Eventbrite.

Many government and nonprofit professionals stand to gain tens of thousands of dollars of student debt relief from the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program established by the College Cost Reduction and Access Act. But the program requirements can be confusing. Heather knows how to break it down step-by-step so it makes sense once and for all. A former capital defense attorney with law school debt, Heather Jarvis (askheatherjarvis.com) now dedicates her expertise to helping student loan borrowers make better decisions so that higher education can be a reality for all – not just those who can afford it. Specializing in training for high-debt borrowers and the people who love them, Heather has provided guidance and information to thousands of students and alumni.

Heather Jarvis will be the guest speaker as part of day two of the Public Service Career Fair held at The University of Texas School of Law. The presentation will take place in the Francis Auditorium (TNH 2.114). Lunch will be served.

Students from Texas Law schools as well as students, faculty and staff from UT-Austin are invited to attend.
