Loan forgiveness and refinancing opportunities are available to support you after you graduate from Stanford GSB.
We are dedicated to preparing our MBA graduates to lead institutions in all industries. In order to encourage MBAs to make meaningful contributions to social issues, economic growth, and political stability in organizations where salaries are typically lower, we offer a loan forgiveness program to reduce the financial impact of educational debt, by paying a percentage of graduates’ Stanford GSB loan obligations while they are employed in the nonprofit or public service sectors.
Loan Forgiveness Program
You can participate in the Stanford MBA Nonprofit/Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program at any point while you are repaying your Stanford GSB loans. Eligibility during any given year does not automatically qualify you for a future year. Loan forgiveness is dependent on available funding.
This is not an entitlement program. The financial aid office determines eligibility for this program on a case-by-case basis, and these decisions are final. We reserve the right to change eligibility guidelines and required application materials at any time. It is also within our discretion to take into account other relevant criteria as needed when determining your eligibility.
Refinancing Student Loans
As lending markets change, several lenders are now offering refinance/consolidation loans specifically for Stanford MBA students.
These loan programs allow alumni to either consolidate just private loans or refinance all loans — both private and federal — borrowed while attending MBA school. Most offer either a fixed or variable interest rate. For more information about refinancing options, please contact the financial aid office.
