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.

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.
