Check if You’re Eligible for a Corinthian Refund
To read what we and our partners are saying about the Department of Education’s decision, check this blog post.
The process you will use to apply depends on which school you attended, what you studied, and when you enrolled.
- If you attended Heald College after 2010, you may be eligible for a refund on your federal student loans depending on your program of study. The Department of Education found that after 2010, Heald College lied to students about its job placement rates for certain programs. If you enrolled in one of these programs, you are eligible to receive a refund by using this simplified application form.
- If you attended one of the Corinthian Colleges that recently closed in April 2014, you may be eligible for a refund on your federal student loans. Students that were an Everest or WyoTech student who did not graduate and who were attending the school when it closed or withdrew on or after December 28, 2014 may be eligible for a refund by submitting a Closed School Loan Discharge Application. The list of campuses that closed is here. To apply for a Closed School Loan Discharge and get a refund, complete this application and send it to your federal student loan servicer.
- If you are a student in California, Attorney General Kamala Harris has posted information that applies specifically to Corinthian Schools in California. Click here to access the California Attorney General’s website with more information.
- If you are not in one of the groups listed above you will still be able to apply for a refund on your federal student loans. However, the Department of Education is still working on the specifics for the process. We will send you an update when we know what students will need to do.
In the meantime, if you have questions, all students who attended a Corinthian College can call the Department to ask questions about your specific situation. The number to call is toll free, (855) 279-6207. Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
