About this Department

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.  The Brown University Loan Office is responsible for managing all Federal Direct and Institutional loan programs, as well as the Brown Employee Loan Program. The office disburses over $30 million in loan funds each year. The office is responsible for the management and collection of Federal Perkins, Health Profession, and Institutional funds. We process payments, deferments, forbearances, and cancellations for these loan programs.  The Loan Office provides efficient management and timely delivery of a broad range of student loan funds within an environment characterized by continuous change in technology and regulation.
