AES Student Loan Forgiveness
Student Loan Forgiveness for American Education Services clients relates to specific circumstances under which you may be entitled to the forgiveness of all or at least part of your educational dept, given you fulfill certain conditions outlined by the program. Relief only refers to student loans which have been secured through the Federal Family Education Loan Program.
The main condition upon which AES may provide you with forgiveness is dependant on the sector in which you work in. Typically these are teaching professions, supposed to encourage young people to pursue a career in education and providing relief in student loans as an incentive. You are more likely to qualify for the program if you teach at a low-income school full time, as well as meeting several other requirements.
When applying for AES Student Loan Forgiveness, there are several documents that you must include, depending on the work you have been performing and your qualifications.
In all cases a letter from the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), such as a superintendent or principal, or assistant of either those two must supply, stating your completion and other qualifying attributes which are specific to your career in teaching, during the academic years for which you are interested in applying for forgiveness.
If you have been teaching at several schools during different academic years, a letter from each CAO must be supplied certifying your qualifying status. If you have taught at different schools during the same academic year, but in total completed a full academic year of service, either of the Chief Administrative Officers must certify your legibility.
There are also several other documents you must include, depending on your teaching mode. If you have worked full time at a secondary school, teaching a subject relevant to your academic major, or as a highly qualified teacher, you must include: A copy (can be unofficial) of your academic transcript and the letter from the CAO, or if you have met the criteria to be considered a highly qualified teacher, you must supply full state certification covering the academic years for which you are applying for, a copy of your bachelor’s degree listing the exact degree you had earned and a copy of the scores from either Praxis or HOUSSE, showing you passed the certification required for licensure in your given state.
If you have worked in special education in either elementary or secondary school with only children facing education with a disability, you must supply: A copy of your full state certificating including the academic years for which your request is being lodged, a copy of your bachelor’s degree and a letter from the CAO stating that you have taught only special education children in a self-contained or inclusive classroom, as well as evidence that you have et the highly qualified teaching requirements under the No Child Left Behind Act: including both a copy of the score you have attained on either the Praxis or HOUSSE tests or an additional letter from the CAO stating that you have met those requirements.
In the case of you being either a math or science teacher in a secondary school, when lodging your application you must include: A copy of your state certification including all the years you are requesting financial relief for, a copy of your bachelor’s degree, the results gained on either your Praxis or HOUSSE scores as well as a letter from the Chief Administrative Officer demonstrating that you have only taught science or math at the given secondary school.
