Nebraska Student Loan Forgiveness Programs
Nebraska has a student loan forgiveness program that is specific to just the State of Nebraska.
However, residents of the State of Nebraska 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.
