Details of the Loan Repayment Assistance Program

Loan Payments:

Support for recipients will be provided in a single allotment, made in January of the approved year, and the payment will be forwarded directly to the alum. It is the responsibility of the recipients to provide Gonzaga University School of Law the type of loan (subsidized, unsubsidized, grad/plus or private loan) they wish the payment to be applied towards. In addition, recipients will be required to fill out a release allowing Gonzaga University School of Law  to contact the lender or loan holder. The release and other forms will be provided to recipients by Gonzaga University School of Law.

Promissory Note:

All recipients will be required to execute a signed promissory note in the amount of the annual LRAP loan as a condition of receiving the loan.

Loan Forgiveness:

If a recipient works in qualifying employment within the LRAP guidelines for at least one year after the January funding, the recipient’s LRAP loan will be forgiven on January 1 of the year following disbursement. Prior to loan forgiveness, the recipient must submit a completed Request for Discharge form certified by the qualifying employer and must submit proof that his or her law school education loans remain in good standing. If a recipient discontinues qualified employment during the calendar year for which they received funding, the LRAP loan must be paid back in full. However, if a recipient remains in qualified employment for at least six months after receipt of funding, a percentage of the loan may be partially forgiven upon application to the law school scholarship committee. The decision of the committee regarding that application will be final. All recipients who owe a percentage or all of their LRAP loans are under a legal obligation to repay these loans to Gonzaga University School of Law based upon their signed promissory note.

Application Accuracy:

Inaccurate information provided in connection with a program application will render a participant immediately and retroactively ineligible for LRAP support. Any LRAP funds that have been disbursed pursuant to inaccurate information provided in a program application must be paid back in full.

Renewal Process:

Participants must apply every year by the deadline. Once admitted to the program, it is the responsibility of the recipient to re-apply each year for renewal and provide updated information. Prior LRAP recipients do not receive priority in the selection process.

Note: This information is intended for the guidance of Gonzaga University School of Law administration, students, faculty, and alumnae. It sets forth in general the manner in which the law school intends to administer its LRAP program, but the law school reserves the right to depart, without notice, from the terms of this publication.
