applying for financial aid

Per a new federal regulation, all NEW Federal Perkins Loan borrowers must have their loan disbursed by October 1, 2016. In order for your Federal Perkins Loan to disburse, you must complete both your entrance counseling and promissory note. If you do not satisfy the necessary requirements before September 30, 2016, your loan will be cancelled. Per federal regulations, this loan cannot be re-awarded once cancelled. For more details on completing your entrance counseling and promissory note, please visit


Welcome to the Boston College Graduate Financial Aid website. Here is where you will begin the process of applying for graduate financial aid.

Use the left navigation menu to help you with your Financial Aid questions. Most of your questions will be answered on these pages. If you have further specific questions, you may contact your Financial Aid Associate. Caseloads for the Graduate Financial Aid office are as follows:

  • If your last name begins with a letter from A through F or S through Z, Elaine Holloman is your financial aid counselor.
  • If your last name begins with a letter from G through R, Marsia Hill Kreaime is your financial aid counselor.
