The IRS has temporarily shut down the online 'Get Transcript' application due to the recent security breach. The online application will remain disabled until the IRS makes modifications and further strengthens security. If Tax Return Transcripts are required for your financial aid application, you may continue to utilize the 'Get Transcript' by mail or phone option through the IRS. Please review the IRS statement or more details.
Per a new federal regulation, all NEW Federal Perkins Loan borrowers must have their loan disbursed by October 1, 2015. 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, 2015, 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 www.bc.edu/perkins.
As of May 10, 2015, The Department of Higher Education implemented the new FSA ID, a modernized log-in process for federal student aid websites including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and the TEACH Grant website. The new FSA ID, which is comprised of a user-selected username and password, replaces the Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which students, parents, and borrowers authenticate their identity to access their federal student aid information. You may download a guide on how to create an FSA ID.
