15/16 Loan Processing: We will begin notifying students to accept loan offers and complete loan requirements in mid-June. We also have a new streamlined application process for PLUS Loans. If you have already completed loan requirements or a PLUS Loan application, that information will be updated in Banner by mid-June.
NEW Federal Login Process: Effective May 10, 2015, you'll need to create a new FSA ID to replace your Federal PIN Number! There is a new login process for the federal websites (FAFSA, StudentLoans.gov, NSLDS). View the FSA ID Guide to learn more.

Your Loans & Refunds: If you have borrowed loans and your student account has a credit balance (overpaid), think about reducing the amount you've borrowed. If you don't need the full amount, send a detailed email to email@example.com to reduce your loans and lower your student loan debt. If you actually need the full amount, request an electronic student account refund through the Bursar's Office.
What We Do
As part of Financial Services, the Loan Office assists students in meeting the cost of education and managing the repayment of educational loans. We help students make informed borrowing decisions, complete loan requirements, and understand the loan process. We are part of the Get Your Bearings Committee & help deliver financial literacy information to the Brown Community.
