Eligibility was determined by the Office of Student Financial Services and was based upon the information provided on the FAFSA.

What happens after I am no longer a full time-Emmanuel student?
All students are required to complete exit counseling prior to withdrawing, dropping below half-time status or graduating. Please contact our office at 617-735-9938 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Loans will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System and will be accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders and schools determined to be authorized users of the data system.
When do I start repaying my loans and how much do I repay?
Most loans are deferred (repayments not required) for six months after you are no longer enrolled in school at least half-time. The Federal Perkins Loan is deferred for nine months after you are no longer enrolled at least half-time. Check with your lender for your specific deferment period – also referred to as grace period.
Federal student loans have payment options developed to help students in all financial situations. To learn about the different repayment options, please visit StudentAid.gov/repay.
What if my deferment period has ended and I am unable to make payments?
If your deferment period has ended and you cannot make payments on your loans, you may qualify for a forbearance. Forbearance allows you to postpone or reduce your monthly payments.
Additionally, federal student loans offer various repayment options to help students. For example, your monthly repayment amount may be reduced if you have a low annual income. To learn more about repayment options, please visit StudentAid.gov/repay.
