Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Certification Forms

As part of the U.S. Department of Education’s Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program, HR is authorized to complete a Public Service Employment Certification form for current and former KU employees.

To submit your PSLF form to KU HR and have it completed and returned to you electronically:

1. Download the PSLF form (pdf) from the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid website.

2. Print the form and complete Section 1 and 2. When finished, scan the edited hard copy and save the file to your computer.

Alternatively, if you have software that allows you to edit PDF documents (such as Adobe Acrobat Pro), complete Section 1 and 2 of the form electronically and save your changes.

  • For your security, we recommend that you do not include your SSN on your form if you send it electronically. When we return the form to you, you can add that information before submitting to the U.S. Department of Education.

3. Email the form to as an attachment. Include your date of birth or last 4 numbers of your SSN within the body of the e-mail for verification purposes.

4. Once KU HR receives your form, Sections 3 and 4 will be completed and returned to you via email.
