Requests for Federal Direct Loans

To be eligible for summer loans, you must be enrolled in a degree program, registered for a minimum of six credits, or be completing a required Clinical Experience that summer. Requests should be submitted in hard copy format. Loan request forms will be available for download from this website in March (you can also pick up printed forms outside Sargent room 217). You may submit your loan request after you register for summer classes. Allow two weeks of processing time for the loan to be in place by the tuition deadline.


To be eligible for a federal loan, you must have a current/upcoming year FAFSA on file with Boston University.  The FAFSA can be completed on the Federal Student Aid website. Boston University’s FAFSA code is 002130.

Please note: If you are a first time borrower or new to Boston University, you are required to complete Entrance Counseling and Loan Agreement for Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan (MPN). If requesting a Graduate Plus Loan, the Loan Agreement for a Plus Loan (MPN) must be completed.
