Student Loan Debt Relief

Federal Student Loan Debt Relief

Co-Lin is committed to keeping you updated with changes to the student loan program.

If you haven't heard, recent court decisions have blocked the Department of Education (ED) from accepting and processing applications for the one-time federal student loan debt relief program. ED has appealed the rulings seeking to overturn the orders. 

Student loans are complicated and, even under normal circumstances, it’s easy to get confused about the responsibilities and options. Copiah-Lincoln Community College wants to make sure every borrower gets the most up-to-date and accurate information. 

That’s why we’ve partnered with Student Connections to provide additional support. Their Borrower Advocates can help answer any questions you have and address any issues you encounter with the process to request debt relief. This service is completely free to you.

Support You Can Trust

ED continues to warn borrowers to beware of scam attempts to take advantage of them. If you are unsure if an offer is legitimate or have questions, a Student Connections Borrower Advocate can help

You may contact them directly Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET at (866) 311-9450.
