LRAP CANCELLATION

The UCLA School of Law (UCLA Law) Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is designed to aid UCLA Law J.D. graduates who wish to undertake qualified public service employment for nonprofit public interest organizations or government agencies (Please see the “Qualifying Employment” section of Program Guidelines for specifics).  UCLA’s LRAP is integrated with the Income Based Repayment (IBR)/Pay As You Earn (PAYE) option and the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program provided by the federal government’s College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 (the Act).

NOTE:  Graduates seeking to participate in LRAP must begin participation in the Program within three years after the end of their loan grace period, which normally ends six months after graduation.

The LRAP will provide assistance on a yearly basis to eligible graduates with unlimited federal student loan debt which also takes into consideration any pre-law federal student loans.  UCLA’s LRAP debt service for all applicants will take into consideration the IBR/PAYE repayment regardless of the applicant’s actual repayment plan.

For applicants who currently do not utilize the Income Based Repayment (IBR)/Pay As You Earn (PAYE), their monthly loan debt will be determined based on the lesser of: (a) the imputed IBR/PAYE repayment or (b) the applicant’s actual repayment plan.  In this case, the applicant will be responsible for at least the difference in his/her actual loan payments and the IBR/PAYE calculation determined by the Law Financial Aid Office for the purposes of LRAP eligibility.

For applicants who currently are utilizing IBR or PAYE to apply for an LRAP loan they must submit:


2.) The Employer Verification form

3.) A completed Loan Indebtedness Information Worksheet

4.) A copy of a disclosure statement for your loans reflecting the IBR/PAYE repayment (see Exhibit #2 of the LRAP application)

5.) A copy of a disclosure statement for your Bar loan, if any

Note: You should carefully review the Program Guidelines before applying for LRAP.
