Ability to Apply for Relief. You can apply for loan consolidation or alternative repayment programs on your own, without paid assistance, through the DOE at www.studentloans.gov. Each of the DOE’s student loan forgiveness programs has specific conditions and requirements that must be satisfied, and borrowers may not qualify under any of these programs.
