How do I qualify?

• May 2014 graduate employed on or before August 15, 2014


You must remain in full-time status for the period of the loan repayment.


What if I receive an NMMC scholarship/tuition reimbursement?


Student loan forgiveness will only be available for semesters that scholarship/tuition reimbursement was not received. Eligibility will be reviewed and if deemed eligible, will be paid on a pro-rated basis.


How much?


BSN Degree – Up to $6,400 of verified loan(s).


How is it paid?


BSN Degree – Each pay period (every two weeks), $128 will be added to your pay for 50 pay periods provided you remain employed as above. This is taxable income to you.


What if I leave employment or change to a non full-time status?


If you leave employment with NMMC-Tupelo or change to a non full-time status, payments will cease and you will have no obligation to refund the money received prior to leaving or changing status.
