Teacher Shortage Areas



This federal designation of teacher shortage areas enables Federal Perkins Loan borrowers who are full time teachers of mathematics, science, foreign languages, bilingual education, language arts, special education, or career & technical education may qualify for cancellation of up to 100% of their loan. Full time teachers in Bennett County, Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Corson County, Crow Creek Indian Reservation, Jackson County, Lower Brule Indian Reservation, Mellette County, Roberts County, Shannon County, and Todd County may qualify for cancellation in all subject areas. Perkins Loan borrowers should direct questions to the school where they received the loan or click here.

These designations may also enable grant recipients to fulfill their teaching obligation under the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program.

This federal designation of teacher shortage areas enables borrowers who had no outstanding Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) on July 1, 1987, but who had an outstanding FFEL on July 1, 1993, to qualify for deferment of loan repayment under the Federal Stafford Loan Program anytime within the life of the borrower’s loan(s) for up to three years of service as a full-time teacher in a public or non-profit private elementary or secondary school in a teacher shortage area.

The principals at the schools are the delegated authority to provide certification that eligible borrowers or scholars are teaching in a designated teacher shortage area.

For information concerning deferment under the Stafford Loan or SLS programs, the borrower should contact the Federal Student Aid Hotline at 1-800-4FED-AID.

A listing of the Teacher Shortage Areas nationwide for the 1990-91 thru 2014-15 school terms is available online at http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/pol/tsa.html.
