Responding to Borrower Defense to Repayment Applications

In this episode of Gavels & Gowns, an Education Law podcast, co-hosts Hal Johnson and Micah Schwartz discuss the U.S. Department of Education’s Borrower Defense to Repayment program, which involves federal student loan programs and applications for relief. 

Listeners will learn how institutions of higher education may be impacted if the department approves a student’s application and then seeks repayment from the institution, as well as what options institutions have in navigating responses to the department. The episode provides timely tips for leaders of institutions to consider as they manage processes for potential responses.
