In order to satisfy the undue hardship portion of the test in order to discharge student loan debt, you will need to show that you are unable to meet your minimally necessary living expenses in order for you to survive. Bankruptcy courts have ruled that a mere unpleasantness associated with repaying the student loan debt is not sufficient.
