Loan Forgiveness

Loan Forgiveness Programs are processed through the entity that holds your loan. For specific questions regarding eligibility for teacher loan forgiveness, you must contact your loan holder. The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (ND DPI) does NOT process, approve or deny the loan forgiveness application.

The ND DPI is responsible for compiling the list of schools that are eligible for Title I and have a free and reduced lunch percentage of 30.1 percent or higher. Teachers employed with school buildings that have a high enough percentage of poverty (30.1%) are eligible for loan forgiveness for one year. This data is uploaded the to the Teacher Cancellation Low Income (TCLI) website three times during the year (January, June, and October ) to add any new school buildings that become eligible.

To find out if your school is on the Perkins and Stafford Loan Cancellation for Service in Low-Income Schools list for teacher loan forgiveness. Please remember to use the School District's name when filling in the "location" category. The search is by School District, not by city.

Once you have determined that your school is on the list for loan forgiveness, you can download the loan application from or request one from whoever holds your loan.  

If your school has been omitted from the list and you think it should be on the list, based on the requirements (eligible for Title I and free and reduced lunch percentage of 30.1 or more), please contact Jill Frohlich or (701) 328-2254 and she will assist you with your questions.
