How to Accept/Decline Your Financial Aid

If you wish to reduce or decline any of the financial aid offered, you have the option of doing so online.  Keep in mind there are limits for the total amount of loan funds you can borrow as an undergraduate and graduate student.  For more information on these limits, visit www.direct.ed.gov/applying.html.

Where on Campus Connection do I accept /decline awards?

 Federal Direct Loans

If you are accepting a Federal Direct Loan for the first time (and you will be enrolled in at least six credits), complete these steps in order for us to process your federal loans.

Federal Perkins/Nursing Loans

If you are borrowing a Federal Perkins Loan for the first time (and you are enrolled in at least six credits) you must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) online through Campus Connection. Borrowers of Federal Perkins Loans are also required to complete loan entrance counseling each year through www.mappingyourfuture.org.

If you are borrowing a Nursing Loan for the first time (and you are enrolled in at least six credits), you will be required to complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance counseling each year through the Nursing Loan servicer ECSI. When you have accepted your Nursing Loan, ECSI will send you an email with instructions on how to complete these items.
