Bakersfield College

Loan forgiveness ads seen on social media


BC has been made aware that there are ads circulating on social media targeting students and alumni claiming to assist with student loan forgiveness and consolidation.  These companies are using Bakersfield College's name, logo, and photographs to create the impression that BC has endorsed or supports their fraudulent student loan forgiveness program.

These companies are marketing their scams through Facebook News Feeds and websites operating under several different names. Please do not respond to any companies who advertise to help you have your loans forgiven.

If you are looking for advice on student loan repayment options, loan consolidation, or possible student loan forgiveness, ECMC  is BC’s partner to assist all students with loan forgiveness, deferment, and repayment. You may also contact BC’s Financial Aid Department with any questions.
