OCCC Staff Can Qualify by:
Oregon Senate Bill 1572 states, for the purposes of public service loan forgiveness, a faculty member is considered full time at a community college or university if they, “engage in 30 or more full-time equivalent work hours per week, with each hour of lecture time or classroom time constituting 4.35 full-time work hours.”
If part-time faculty work less than 30 or more hours per week, their earned hours towards repayment will be calculated on a pro-rated basis.
OCCC is committed to increasing awareness of the public service loan forgiveness program among all employees and increasing participation by eligible employees in the public service loan forgiveness program.
