ATTESTATION FOR CERTAIN EVEREST AND WYOTECH STUDENTS
APPLICATION FOR BORROWER DEFENSE TO REPAYMENT LOAN DISCHARGE
The Department of Education has found that at various times between 2010 and 2014, Everest Institute, Everest College, and Everest University (“Everest”), and WyoTech 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 Everest and WyoTech students to enroll in these programs. This form covers federal Direct Loans (including Parent PLUS loans issued to parents of Everest and WyoTech students) 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/ev-wy-findings.pdf. Please fill out
this attestation ONLY IF your program and dates of enrollment are included on this list.
Everest and WyoTech 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.
