What the new student loan forgiveness means for MSSU

JOPLIN, Mo – What does the new student loan forgiveness mean for students at MSSU?

On Aug. 24th, President Biden announced the Student Debt Reduction Plan– giving individuals in certain income brackets debt relief ranging from $10,oo0-$20,000.

The announcement came in the middle of Missouri Southern State’s opening school week– which started last Monday.

The school says that they have had an increased amount of calls and inquiries from both current and former students reaching out about the relief plan.

“It’s an opportunity for us to help make sure they know that this is a possibility”, said Becca Diskin, Director of Financial at MSSU.
