Los Rios is eliminating eligible student debt! The COVID-19 pandemic created unforeseen financial stresses for many students, so we are providing one-time debt forgiveness to support students in their academic goals.

Eligible students do not need to take any action – there are no applications or forms to fill out.

Student and Debt Eligibility

The general eligibility criteria for student debt forgiveness is as follows:

Only Los Rios debt is forgiven. Third-party debt or debt incurred before March 2020 or after the summer 2022 semester is not forgiven under this program. Third-party debt that does not qualify for forgiveness includes:

  • Universal Transit Pass (UTP) fees
  • Student Representation fees

Student Account

If your student debt has been forgiven, then you will see a line item in your student account titled Student Debt Write Off.
