How to Accept and Receive Your Grad PLUS Loan

Each academic year, you need to accept your loan via your LionPATH Student Center.

First-time Graduate PLUS loan borrowers also need to complete Loan Counseling and Complete a Loan Agreement (sign a Master Promissory Note).

The Graduate PLUS loan 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.

Sign your MPN

Open "PLUS MPN for Graduate/Professional Students" 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.
