Arizona Grants - Loan Forgiveness Program

The Math, Science and Special Education Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program (MSSE) is a student-centered, need-based forgivable loan designed to financially support and to encourage Arizona resident junior or senior college students to enter into the teaching profession and teach in Arizona. Students must enter into an agreement with the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education (ACPE) to teach in an Arizona public school for a term equal to the number of years of loan received plus one year. Additionally, students must sign a promissory note acknowledging the conditions of the loan and promising to repay the loan plus interest if teaching obligation is not met. The financial aid office at the institution must certify that the student meets the minimum qualifications for the loan. Loans are awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis.
