Student Loan Consolidation
- Important: Federal Student Loan Consolidation is FREE! Recently there have been advertisements and infomercials on the radio and television regarding defaulted student loan debt relief. Private companies are stating they can help stop harassing collection calls as well as restore credit for defaulted student loan debt. These companies are promoting a service for a fee of up to $500. The federal government will do all of this for free. You can consolidate your loans by visiting www.loanconsolidation.ed.gov. DO NOT be fooled! DO NOT pay anyone to consolidate your loans.
Questions about default repair and federal loan consolidation may be answered by our own BC Loan Repayment staff. Call us at 800-294-0294 if you have concerns or need assistance.
Unreturned Library Books and Fines
- All items must be returned or renewed by their due dates. To verify the items you are currently borrowing, visit www.bc.edu/libraries/materials/accounts.html and log onto your Holmes account.
- Library fines and replacement fees for unreturned items will be applied to your student account. You are responsible for all charges. If you have any questions, please contact the O’Neill Library Circulation Desk at 617-552-8038 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
