ACPE offers resource to prevent default during the outbreak of COVID-19

ACPE is making a disaster forbearance available to borrowers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This forbearance is available to most borrowers and can pause your payment obligation for three months and prevent default for past-due borrowers. Contact us ASAP if you are experiencing challenges making your student loan payment as we have a number of options available that may assist you, including temporary garnishment reductions for borrowers in collection situations. You can reach us by email at at ACPE@alaska.gov or by phone at 800-441-2962 (465-2962 in Juneau).  

The 60 day coronavirus forbearance and suspension of interested on federal loans does not apply to ACPE’s FFELP loans. If you are experiencing challenges making your student loans payment, contact us ASAP.


ACT and SAT Requirement Waived for Class of 2020

For the graduating class of 2020, the State of Alaska is waiving the ACT and SAT requirement for Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) eligibility this year, and GPA will be the determinant of the award level. The requirement is waived due to the ACT and SAT test cancellations. Details of this waiver and any other changes to APS policies will be available on the APS website by late-April.
