                  For example: (username: bbronco@scu.edu, PW: 00001234567) 

5)  You, the student, will then get an email from Gallagher (if this is your first time waiving, it will give you a temp password and send it to the students SCU email, if you forgot your Gallagher Login information you can click "Forgot Password" and a temporary password will be sent to your SCU email)

6) After logging in you should click on the "I want to WAIVE" red button which will then take you to the Health Insurance waiver application.

Financial Aid FAQs

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application used to determine eligibility for federal and state student grants, federal work study and federal loans. The U.S. Department of Education accepts applications beginning January 1 of each year for the upcoming academic year. Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov


Santa Clara University's Federal School Code is 001326.

The Master Promissory Note (MPN) is a legal document which the borrower signs as a promise to repay your loan(s) and any accrued interest and fees to the U.S. Department of Education. It also explains the terms and conditions of your loan(s). Unless your school does not allow more than one loan to be made under the same MPN, you can borrow additional Direct Loans on a single MPN for up to 10 years.

The Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) must be signed by the borrower prior to the school certification and prior to the disbursement of any loan funds to the student's account. The completion of the MPN is generally signed at the time the application is submitted and can be signed electronically during the application process.

If the borrower applies for the loan each year, then the borrower only has to complete the MPN once – the first year these funds are borrowed for you. The borrower, however, must re-apply for a new loan every year.


If you accept a Federal Direct Loan, federal and institutional regulations require you to complete an entrance counseling tutorial, where you will learn important information about repayment, deferment, forbearance and cancellation. Students meet this requirement by completing the online the entrance counseling tutorial at https://studentloans.gov.

If you have not previously received a Federal Direct Loan, the federal government requires you to complete entrance counseling to ensure that you understand the responsibilities and obligations you are assuming.


To qualify for federal student aid (loans, and work-study funds), you have to meet certain requirements.

Student must be enrolled in at least half-time status to be eligible for federal funding.

Please note that some Scholarships awarded by the Graduate School of Law may be awarded based on the amount of units that you are enrolled in so please be sure to check with your Program!!
