Holds or To Do List Items

Maybe you have a hold or to do list item that you need to complete. Log into the home page of your LionPATH account and check the 'Holds' tab and 'To Do List' tab to see if there is something that you need to complete. You aid will not authorize and show as a credit towards you bill until you have completed all necessary tasks. Examples include:

  • Incomplete verification
  • Sign your loan Master Promissory Note (MPN)
  • Complete counseling for your loan
