This can be done online at www.studentloans.gov. In order to process loan applications and have funds in place by our due date, it is important that you file your FAFSA at least six weeks prior to the start of classes. The FAFSA can be filed anytime after January 1st using the previous years' estimated or completed tax return. William James College school code to receive the results is G21636.

If you have filed your FAFSA, the financial aid department will send out a Financial Aid Award Letter along with important information regarding federal loans via US mail within 10 days of your offer of admission.

If you have not received your award letter or you have questions about your award, please contact the Office of Student Services at 617-327-6777 x1523.

You must sign and return one copy of your Award Letter by the due date indicated on the letter. You will then be directed to go online to www.studentloans.gov to complete an Entrance Counseling Session and fill out the MPN (master promissory note) for the loan(s) you are requesting. A loan cannot be processed until these steps are completed.

Students who borrowed from the federal student loan programs prior to enrollment at William James College must provide to our Registrar a loan deferment request form from the lender(s) or school(s) that originated the loan.
