The specifics please:

Okay, firstly not every Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) is eligible for the CLRP program. The second bit of important information to consider is that the different branches of the military have different payment caps, and that officers are ineligible – this is for enlisted personnel only.

So... which loans are eligible?:

If you hold a Auxiliary Loan Assistance for Students (ALAS) Loan, a Stafford Loan, A Parents PLUS loan for undergraduate students (with caveats), Federally Insured Loan (FISL), a Federal Perkins Loan, a Supplemental Loan for Students (SLS) or are taking advantage of the Consolidated Loan Program you may be eligible.
