Accepting Your Loans, Entrance Counseling, Master Promissory Notes, and Exit Counseling

Mulert, Perkins, Nursing, Health Professions, and Institutional Loans

Before the University can credit loan funds from Perkins, Nursing, Health Professions, and Institutional Loans (such as the Mulert Loan Fund) to your student account, you must first accept your loans. You must accept your loans every year.

Once accepted, you are required annually to complete an Entrance Counseling and electronically sign a Promissory Note except those students borrowing through the Perkins Loan program. Perkins requires a Master Promissory Note, so you only need to complete your MPN and Entrance Counseling when borrowing a Perkins Loan for the first time. When leaving the University, all students with these loans are also required to complete an Exit Interview.


Federal Direct Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and Graduate PLUS Loans

Funds for these loans are received by the University electronically. Before loan funds can be applied to students’ accounts, you must first accept your loans, and must do so every year.

Once your loans are accepted, first time borrowers must complete Entrance Counseling and sign the Master Promissory Note.  When leaving the University, students with these loans must also complete Loan Exit Counseling.

Parent PLUS Loans

First time Parent PLUS borrowers must also complete Entrance Counseling and sign the Master Promissory Note. Parents interested in applying for a Parent PLUS loan can access information here.
