Some Federal Student Loans Cancelled in New Jersey

Posted by NCBRC - July 5, 2017

Approximately 2,200 students who enrolled in any one of five schools operated by Corinthian Colleges, Inc., a New Jersey for-profit entity, are eligible to have their federal student loans cancelled. Corinthian Colleges ceased operations in 2015 under scrutiny by government entities into fraudulent conduct including misrepresentations made between 2010 and 2014 about post-graduate employment rates, the transferability of credits, and other issues. The schools affected by the loan cancellation are Everest Institute, Everest College, Everest University, Heald College, and Wyotech. Students who have their federal loans cancelled will make no further payments and will receive a refund of payments already made. The loan cancellation was announced on May 22, 2017, in a Press Release issued by Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino Office. The Attorney General’s office is sending outreach letters and application forms to those students who may be eligible for the loan cancellation.
