The short answer is no - bankruptcy is the only real possibility to get rid of student loan debt. However, even if you file bankruptcy, student loans are generally not dischargable. The only exception is if you can prove a financial hardship. This is very hard to prove, but if you can show that your financial situation is dire and you can't afford basic living expenses if you're required to pay, and if you can show that you can't work and that's not going to change in the future (due to health issues), it is possible to discharge all or part of your student loans.
