About this Department

What We Do

We manage the billing and collection of student accounts and assist student and families in understanding payment and financing options. We manage all Federal Direct and Institiutional loan programs and manage the billing and collection of Federal Perkins, Institutional, and Health Profession loans. Email is the official form for University communications.  The University sends official and important messages to the student's Brown email account.  It is important and expected that all students activate their Brown email accounts as soon as possible and to check their Brown email frequently to keep informed of their financial responsibilities.
