This loan is awarded to students with significant financial need and is limited by the availability of program funds. If you are eligible for this loan, it will appear on your award letter.

What must I do to accept my Massachusetts No-Interest Loan?

If you've been awarded a Massachusetts No-Interest Loan, all borrowers at Emmanuel College must complete and sign:

  1. a promissory note;
  2. entrance counseling; and
  3. a self-certification form.

Borrowers will be notified via e-mail from the Office of Student Financial Services when these documents are available. Funds will be credited to the student's account only after the completion of the required documents.

What happens after I am no longer a full-time Emmanuel student?

All students are required to complete an exit counseling prior to withdrawing, dropping below half-time status or graduating. You may complete this requirement online with ECSI.
