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 loans@brown.edu 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.
