How to Accept and Receive Your Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan

Each academic year, you need to accept, decrease, or decline your loans via your LionPATH Student Center.

First-time borrowers also need to complete Loan Entrance Counseling and Complete a Master Promissory Note (sign a MPN). In most cases, you will only need to complete these items once during your college career.

Your Subsidized/Unsubsidized loans will appear as a credit on your tuition bill after you complete these requirements.

Complete your loan counseling requirement

Open "Complete Counseling" on StudentLoans.gov.

Open "Subsidized/Unsubsidized Maser Promissory Note (MPN)" on StudentLoans.gov.

If you have technical difficulty signing the MPN, please contact the U.S. Department of Education's Student Loan Support Center at 800-557-7394.
