Connecticut Student Loan Forgiveness Programs
Connecticut has seven student loan forgiveness programs that are specific to just the State of Connecticut, however, only one is currently being funded by the state.
However, residents of the State of Connecticut can also potentially qualify for various Federal student loan forgiveness programs.
You can find a great list of Federal student loan forgiveness programs here: Top Student Loan Forgiveness Programs.
If you have private student loans, it might make more sense to refinance your loans and see if you can get a lower interest rate and payment. We recommend Credible for student loan refinancing because you can find out in 2 minutes or less if it's worth it. Try out Credible here. You can get up to a $1,000 gift card bonus if you refinance with Credible.
