Former Corinthian College Students May Be Eligible to Have Loans Cancelled

The state of California, through the attorney general’s office, is seeking to notify thousands of California residents who attended schools operated by Corinthian Colleges that they may be eligible to have their federal student loans cancelled.

Corinthian Colleges targeted low-income Californians and misrepresented job prospects and placement rates. If you feel that one of the Corinthian schools lied to you about these things or the transferability of credits or any other issues of deception, you may apply to have their federal student loans canceled using the Department of Education’s universal discharge application at https://borrowerdischarge.ed.gov.

Corinthian-operated colleges include Everest Institute, Everest College, Everest University, Heald College, and Wyotech.

It is estimated that 38,000 California residents are eligible to have their loans discharged. The state of California won a $1.1 billion judgement against Corinthian colleges in March of 2016 for their predatory and unlawful practices.
