Professional Financial Guidance makes our services available for free or at a reduced
rate based on the debtor student's ability to pay. Please contact our office to see if you are eligible for a waiver of fees. Debtor
students' eligibility is based on information provided on this form.
A debtor presumptively lacks the ability to pay the fee if the debtor’s
household current income is less than 150 percent of the poverty guidelines
updated periodically in the Federal Register by the U.S. department of Health
and Human Services under the authority of 42 U.S.C. 9902(2), as adjusted from
time to time, for a household or family of the size involved in the fee determination.
Individuals with income below 150% of the national poverty guideline will receive the course for free. If you do not
request eligilibility, PFGED will evaluate the income information your provide and refund
payments made to students who meet the eligibility requirements.
