After you have been awarded there are some additional steps you need to take to receive loans:
1. You need to accept your loan funds.
Of the loan funds offered to you, you will be given the option to accept all of the funds, a portion, or decline them altogether. Once you submit your acceptance of a loan, Student Financial Services will start the loan certification process. You still have the option to adjust your loan amounts throughout the year, but some restrictions may apply. You should contact Student Financial Services or see the "What Do I Need To Know About Loans?" section for more information.
2. If this is the first time you are taking out loans at Fuller you will need to complete Loan Entrance Counseling.
The Entrance Counseling session will begin with basic financial aid information and will end with a quiz. Don't worry, if you miss a question you will have the opportunity to answer it again. After all of the questions have been answered correctly, your results will be sent directly to the Student Financial Services Office. You may complete your counseling requirement by clicking on the link below.

3. If this is your first loan at Fuller you will need to sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN).
This can be completed at www.studentloans.gov. This is your agreement to pay back the loan funds you borrow. Your loans can be certified before you complete this, but the loan funds will not be disbursed until after the MPN is complete. Note: The Direct Unsubsidized Loan and the GradPlus Loan have different MPNs. If you will be borrowing both types of loans then you will complete two separate MPNs.
