April Checklist

Welcome to the Student Services Monthly Checklist.

Highlights for April include important reminders for graduating seniors and preparing for summer and fall registration.

Action Items

Read the Coronavirus Protocols and FAQs page.

Student Services is available for walk-in service.

Students wishing to schedule an appointment with their Financial Aid Officer, Credit and Collections staff, or Academic Recorder must call for a phone appointment at 800-294-0294 or 617-552-3300.

For more information, visit the Coronavirus Protocols page. It will be expanded and updated on a necessary and frequent basis.

Prepare for Undergraduate Academic Advising.

We recommend that you run a Degree Audit to ensure that you are on schedule for completing all required Core, major/minor, elective classes to reach the required credit requirements for your degree. Students should reach out to their advisor to schedule an appointment to review plans for the fall term.

Review the EagleApps training materials.

Students will be using EagleApps to plan and register for summer and fall courses. Please be sure to carefully review the information on the Course Registration page for training materials needed to navigate the new registration process. Note: Registration conducted outside of the BC network will still require the use of Eagle VPN and BC 2-Step Verification.

View the Registration Calendar.

Visit the Registration Calendar page for information regarding when planning and registration will be available in EagleApps for Summer and Fall 2021.

Run a degree audit at www.bc.edu/myservices (graduating seniors).

Look for the following message: "If you successfully complete all the courses for which you are currently registered, you will have met all the requirements for the degree." If a student does not receive this message, he/she will not meet the requirements for graduation and will not receive a degree. Please reach out to the appropriate academic contact (MCAS — Whitney Hoyle; CSOM, CSON, and Lynch — Marika Cerbone) or your advisor or Academic Dean immediately to resolve any graduation clearance issue.

Attend a Student Loan Exit Interview (graduating students).

Students should have received an e-mail in March for instructions on how to complete the online exit process at Heartland ECSI (BC's loan servicing company). Learn about loan repayment options, consolidation, and loan forgiveness plans, and take the mystery and confusion out of loan repayment at www.bc.edu/loanrepayment.

Failure to complete the online exit interview will result in your diploma and transcript being held.

Note the withdrawal deadline.

The last date to withdraw from a course or the University is April 20.

If you have not already, review your student account at www.bc.edu/myservices.

Unresolved accounts may prevent your participation in registration for summer and fall, as well as any potential events related to graduation including the issuance of diplomas. Please resolve any balances prior to these events.

Add money to your Eagle One card account before the deadline (if needed, graduating seniors).

The deadline is April 9.

Looking for a summer job?

Summer job opportunities will be made available for viewing during the spring. Please check back for updates.

Note the returning undergraduate financial aid application deadline.

The priority filing date for the Undergraduate Financial Aid Application was February 1.

For information on how to apply or how to check your application status, visit the Applying for Aid page. Application forms and instructions are available on the Financial Aid Forms page.

Note the financial aid deadlines for graduate and law students.

The priority deadline for graduate and law students wanting summer work study or summer loans was February 4. The priority deadline for academic-year only financial aid was March 5.

All non-law graduate students applying for financial aid, please note: for 2021–2022, there is a new required Grad Enrollment Form to complete for financial aid.

Return or renew any library books by their due dates.

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 notices@bc.edu.

Complete Title IV Authorization (if applicable).

Federal regulations require that Title IV funds credited to your student account be applied only to cover allowable charges, unless Boston College obtains authorization to apply these funds to all other charges on your student account. You may submit your authorization electronically at www.bc.edu/myservices. For more information, visit the Billing page.

Enroll in direct deposit for student account refunds (if applicable).

We recommend that all students use direct deposit when requesting refunds. Refunds processed via direct deposit are faster and do not require pickup. Visit the Billing page for instructions and more information.
