We realize that financing a Curry education can be a challenge. We offer the following options to assist you in financing your Curry College education.
We encourage you to apply for federal need-based financial aid prior to applying for a private education loan. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to have eligibility determined for and receive an actual financial aid award that includes - federal grant, loan or work study assistance.
Direct billing is available for students who demonstrate that their employer or other organization will be paying the college directly for their classes. Students in this category may register upon providing appropriate documentation, such as a purchase order or voucher.
Online payments: Curry College partners with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to process credit/debit card and checking/savings account payments online. TMS accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard and VISA cards.
To pay online, simply log onto TMS' secure website at curry.afford.com/paynow and select "Pay in Full". There is no cost to use this service. Students can also access this online payment gateway directly from their student account invoice in the CurryWeb Information System. Tuition can be paid for by check or credit card. VISA, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted.
If you prefer to pay Curry directly, you can visit our office during regular business hours to pay with cash or mail your personal or official check to our address. We are available to assist you and answer any questions you have at 617-333-2354 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Private Education Loan Self Certification Form Information
Effective February 14, 2010, lenders of private education loans are required to collect a completed and signed Self Certification Form (PDF) from the student prior to disbursing the loan proceeds to the College. This requirement applies to any private education loan(s) that are not at least partially disbursed prior to the effective date. To assist you in completing the information necessary for SECTION 2: COST OF ATTENDANCE AND ESTIMATED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE of the form, you can log in to your myCurry account to view individual information. Private education loans include all Alternative Loan, as well as the Massachusetts No Interest Loans programs. Individual lending institutions are implementing their own procedures to comply with this new regulation, so you should contact your lender directly if you have specific questions about the process for submitting this form.
If you do not submit a completed and signed Self Certification Form to your lender, your loan funds will not be disbursed to the College.
Regulation Z - Truth in Lending (TILA)
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) enacted August 2008 amended the Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) establishing private education loan disclosure requirements about loan terms on or with the loan application and lenders must also disclose information about lower cost alternatives like federal student loans. Additionally, once the loan is approved and finalized for disbursement, additional disclosures must be provided. These regulations were passed to ensure that borrowers of private education loans have the necessary information to make informed choices about financing products to fund educational costs. These regulations apply to all private education loans but not to loans under the Federal IV loan programs (Stafford, Perkins and PLUS). We are providing a model Private Lender Agreement (PLA) Form as an example of what your lending institution is required to share with you upon borrowing an educational loan.
You will find, if you have borrowed a private educational loan previously, the process of applying for and receiving an education loan will take a longer period of time. Therefore, we encourage you to start early in the planning your educational financing so you do not experience delays in receiving your education loan proceeds. Under these new amendments, you, the borrower will have additional responsibilities as a loan borrower including acknowledgement of the disclosure statements and completion of the Self-Certification Form. We encourage you to check with your lender to ensure you complete all necessary paperwork. Also, we invite you to contact the Student Financial Services Office if you have any questions about these new requirements.
