Loan Repayment Options for Current Undergraduate Students

Emerson College believes its role as a resource doesn’t end with graduation. We are here to provide information and assistance aimed at helping you transition from student to responsible loan borrower.

Repaying educational loans can be a significant challenge. How you handle your repayment responsibilities can greatly impact your credit rating. Becoming delinquent on student loans can make it very difficult for you to make major purchases, such as a car or a home. On the other hand, responsible repayment habits can help you to build an excellent credit history. For these reasons, we urge you to take your repayment responsibilities seriously.

If you need assistance, we are here for you either by phone: 617-824-8655, or via email:

Determining Your Loan Repayment Amount

  1. Determine how much federal student loan debt you have and the contact information for who you need to repay. Begin by registering for your Federal PIN number and log on to the National Student Loan Data System (click on Financial Aid Review to get started).

    NOTE: This database does not keep track of any alternative loans you borrow (e.g., Sallie Mae loans, Citibank loans). If you borrowed alternative loans, you must contact your lender directly.

  2. Estimate your total monthly repayment amount for all of your student loans. You should contact your lender/s for this information. You can also use repayment calculators such as the ones found on the Mapping Your Future website.

If you are a former student who left Emerson owing money on his or her student account, visit Past Due Tuition Accounts to get information on how to settle your account and release your academic transcripts.
