Anyone ever have a Fed. Perkins Loan Cancelled?

  1. hi everyone,

    i was just wondering if anyone ever utilized the fed. perkins loan during their time in school and if they were ever able to get it cancelled?

    i would love to go to phillips beth israel school of nursing and know that they offer the fed. perkins loan but i've read on the website for fed. perkins loan that it is up to the school to have the loan cancelled. - which i think sucks!!! anyone have actually received a cancellation of the perkins loan? or know anyone who has recently???

    I know that in Wisconsin I can have my loans canceled over a 5 year period as long as I remain employed as a Registered Nurse full-time.

    I got a federal student loan cancelled for active duty in the military when this was an option. Every so often, a paper was signed by someone certifying that I was on active duty and a portion of the loan was removed.

    I called the lender of my Perkins loan and they told me as long as I am a RN with at least 1 year of full time work under my belt, that the loan can be canceled.
