8. Program participants who entered the program prior to the effective date of P.L.1999, c.46 (N.J.S.18A:71A-1 et al.), and who have entered into redemption contracts with the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority may nullify their contracts by submitting written notification to the executive director of the authority and assuming full responsibility for repayment of principal and interest on the full amount of their nonfederal direct loans or that portion of the loans which has not been redeemed by the State in return for partial fulfillment of the contracts. The interest on the loans shall be at the prevailing rate established for the Federal Family Education Loan Program at the time the loans were made. The participant seeking to nullify the contract shall be required to repay the loan or the unredeemed portion thereof in not more than 10 years following the termination of the contract minus the years of service already performed under the contract. Repayments of nonfederal direct loans by participants who do not perform faculty service for redemption purposes may be used to provide future loans under the program, as determined by the executive director of the authority.
