It was recently brought to our attention that a company called Student Advocate has been targeting University of Hartford students on Facebook with the promise of student loan forgiveness if you contact them. This is not a legitimate company. They appear to be seeking money and/or information in exchange for their service.
There are some student loan forgiveness options available, but they are all free of charge and offered directly through the federal government. Information about these legitimate options can be found at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation.
If you have any questions about the legitimacy of an offer you receive concerning financial aid and student loans, please call or email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 768-4296.
