Federal Student Aid and the Biden-Harris Administration have announced loan forgiveness plans of up to $20,000 for prior Pell-Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for all other loan borrowers. To be eligible borrower’s annual income must be below $125,000 (individuals) and $250,000 (married couples/head of households). If the U.S. Department of Education doesn’t have your income data – or if you don’t know if the U.S. Department of Education has your income data, the Administration will launch a simple application in the coming weeks. Borrowers can view their loan balances and check their Pell Grant status by logging into their Federal Student Aid account online at studentaid.gov.
Please visit studentaid.gov/debt-relief-announcement/ for the most up-to-date information.
If you would like to be notified by the U.S. Department of Education when the application is open, please sign up at the Department of Education subscription page.

City University of Seattle in Washington State is a vaccinated campus per the governor’s COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement proclamation (21-14 and 21-14.1). All Washington State on-campus students, staff and faculty are required to be fully vaccinated to be on campus for any activity (instruction, library/labs usage, residence hall, work) or participate in any offsite University sponsored activity (partnership location classes, student activities, internships/practica).
All students who attend classes in Washington state will need to attest to full-vaccination status or declare a vaccination exemption. Students who require a medical or religious vaccination exemption will need to complete the attestation and declare an exemption. Those that declare an exemption will need to provide documentation.
Effective May 2022, the University uses an automated system to collect student attestations electronically. For all students who enroll in an onsite class in Washington State (Seattle, Tacoma, Everett/Edmonds Community College, Renton/Renton Technical College, Vancouver/Clark College) or who enroll in an internship/practica, who have not yet provided an attestation to the University from a previous quarter, will be sent an automated mail to their CityU email account requesting an attestation.
