Attestation for Certain Heald College Students Application
Application for Borrower Defense to Repayment Loan Discharge

The Department of Education has found that at various times between 2010 and 2014, Heald College published misleading job placement rates for many of its programs of study. This form is designed to expedite the process of obtaining loan forgiveness based on borrower defense to repayment for loans taken out by Heald College students to enroll in these programs. This form covers federal Direct Loans received on or after July 1, 2010. A list of covered programs and dates of enrollment is available at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/sites/default/files/heald-findings.pdf. Please fill out this attestation ONLY IF your program and dates of enrollment are included on this list.

Heald College students who did not attend programs where the Department of Education found misleading job placement rates, or whose decision to enroll was not influenced by those job placement rates, may still be eligible for loan forgiveness based on borrower defense to repayment. Additional instructions to file a claim for loan forgiveness can be found at studentaid.ed.gov.
