If Federal Direct Student or parent PLUS Loans make up all or part of your payment, these funds should appear on your invoice as pending items. Pending items reflect anticipated amounts, and they are subject to change. If federal loans do not appear on your invoice as credits or pending items, it may indicate that certain requirements for these loans have not been completed, and you should contact the Office of Financial Assistance at (617)353-2965. Graduate students should contact the financial aid officer at their school. Students can also check their financial aid application and award status on the Student Link.
If you are applying for private education loans, and the amount of the loan will be sufficient to settle your student account, you must submit a notice of loan approval to Student Accounting Services before the payment deadline to avoid a late payment fee. If you are receiving any type of loan, it is important to complete all requirements as early as possible to ensure that the funds are applied to your outstanding balance by the first day of the semester. In addition, you must make payment of any balance not covered by loans by the payment deadline to avoid a late payment fee.
Boston University Scholarships, State Scholarships, and Outside Awards may be deducted from your invoice if they do not already appear as pending items. You must enclose documentation of an award letter with your invoice stub. You must also notify the Office of Financial Assistance of any outside award or state grant received after your initial award package.
Please note: Federal College Work Study Awards cannot be deducted from the amount due as they are paid directly to the student for hours worked. Funds from the Federal Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, and Perkins Loan Programs will be directly credited to your account when you have met the appropriate requirements.
