Stanford expands financial aid for 2023–24

Undergraduate families with incomes below $100,000 will not have to pay tuition, room, or board, trustees announced as they set tuition for the coming year.

Federal Student Aid

Federal student loan debt relief

Under the Biden Loan Forgiveness program, borrowers of federal student loans could apply to have up to $10,000 in debt discharged. Those who received Pell Grants could qualify to have up to $20,000 discharged. However, this program is currently on hold due to court orders. Be sure to avoid debt-relief scams.
