A federal loan can be cancelled under certain--extreme--circumstances:

  • Permanent and total disability;
  • Inability to complete a course of study because your school closes (if certain conditions prevail);
  • Your eligibility was falsely certified by your school;
  • Your identity was stolen and used to obtain the student loan illegally; or
  • In the event of your death.

Contact your lender or servicer for more information about the documentation required to cancel your loan.
