Alumni

Welcome Alumni!

We congratulate you on completing your degree here at Santa Clara University! Wherever the road takes you as you move onto the next chapter of your life, you will always be a fellow Bronco and welcomed.

We hope you find the resources on the page helpful. This Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section for parents and family, answers some of the most commonly asked questions the One Stop staff receives.

Bursar FAQ

You may have recent activity, credit or a balance past due on your account. To stop these emails from reaching you and any of the authorized users linked to your account, you would want to clear your balance or request a refund for your credit.

Please visit us, give us a call at: +1.408.551.1000 , or email us at: onestop@scu.edu if you have additional questions.

 

There is a hold on your account because of an unpaid balance past due, or because you need to get in contact with us about Exit Counseling for your Perkins Loan (Please call +1.408.554.4620 for Credit Counseling)

Most holds can be released in 24 business hours. If the account has a delinquent hold (2 or more late fees have been assessed), the hold can take longer to remove:

  • Cash,Cashier’s Check, Money Order – Hold can be lifted immediately if you contact us during business hours.
  • Online Payment – 5 business days
  • Personal Check Payment- 21 business days

                Some late payment holds cannot be paid online.

For poor payment histories some account holds will remain even after a guaranteed fund payment is made.

Holds placed by departments other than One Stop (Enrollment Services Center/or the Bursar’s Office): Contact the department who placed the hold for more information and about hold release.

If you cannot pay off the full amount of your past dues, we highly recommend contacting One Stop as soon as possible. Maintaining contact with us is key if you are having trouble paying off your balance and if you do not want to be sent to collections.

Financial Aid FAQ

Before you leave school or graduate, you are required to complete the exit counseling tutorial. The purpose of the exit counseling tutorial is to select a repayment plan; review deferment, forbearance and cancellation provisions; review loan consolidation; and review the serious consequences of delinquency and default.

An e-mail will be sent requesting that you complete this process once you apply for graduation. You will receive a notice when it is time for you to complete the exit counseling tutorial requirement.

The exit counseling tutorial requirement may be met online through the Federal Direct Loan website at http://studentloans.gov.

Yes. Students who also borrowed a Federal Perkins Loan can complete their exit counseling tutorial from the ECSI website.

The Federal Direct Loan program offers several repayment options, you can find out more information about these repayment plans at www.studentloans.gov.

Yes! You can go onto www.NSLDS.ed.gov or contact them directly by calling: +1.800.433.3243

You can find out how much you have borrowed plus the interest you have accumulated to date. They can also provide you with the direct contact information of your lenders so you can get in touch with them to find out where to send your payments.

If you do not make a payment on time, then you are considered delinquent. Default occurs when a Federal Direct Loan borrower becomes 270 days delinquent in making a loan payment. There are numerous adverse consequences that will result if you default on your student loan. These negative consequences include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • you will not be eligible for future federal financial aid
  • your account may be turned over to a collection agency
  • your credit rating will be damaged
  • your federal income tax refund may be withheld from you
  • your wages may be garnished
  • your car and other possessions may be repossessed
  • the federal government can sue you
 

Under certain circumstances, you can receive a deferment or forebearance that allows you to temporarily postpone or reduce your federal student loan payments. Postponing or reducing your loans may help you avoid default. 

You will need to work with your loan servicer to apply for deferment or forebearance; and be sure to keep making payments on your loans until the forebearance or deferment is in place.

Registrar FAQ

Students do not receive their diplomas on the day of commencement. Rather, the diplomas will be mailed to the address provided on the petition form 3-6 months after the degree completion date. If your address changes after you petition to graduate, please email registrar@scu.edu

No, Diplomas will be held at the Office of the Registrar for students who have a financial hold or Student Life hold until the hold is removed. It is the student's responsibility to reconcile the hold and contact the Office of the Registrar once it has been removed.
