Texas Law Loan Repayment Assistance Program
Exciting Changes to Texas Law’s LRAP!
In keeping with Texas Law’s commitment to public service, the Dean has approved updates and improvements to our existing LRAP, which will go into effect in summer/fall 2020. The updated LRAP will align assistance with existing federal income-driven repayment plans and the federal government’s Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.
The updated LRAP would continue to serve our Texas Law JD graduates who enter qualifying public service employment. The improved program increases the income cap for eligibility from $55,000 to $80,000 per year. Participants who earn an annual income up to $60,000 may receive the full benefit in LRAP payments, while participants whose income is between $60,001 and the salary cap will receive assistance based on a contribution formula.
Please stay tuned for additional details and check back to this page for updates.
Current Texas Law Loan Repayment Program
The Texas Law Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) provides financial assistance to graduating students with educational debt who enter qualifying public service, beginning with the Class of 2008. Texas Law places a high value on working for the good of society, and the Texas Law LRAP is designed to make it possible for our graduates to choose to accept public service employment.
The Texas Law LRAP, when coupled with the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness and Income Based Repayment programs, may significantly help graduates in public service repay their educational debt. For more information about these federal programs, visit Equal Justice Works and IBRinfo.org.
Applications to receive LRAP loans are accepted and processed twice a year. For the period January 1 to June 30, the deadline for applications is November 20. For the period July 1 to December 31, the application deadline is June 10.
