A loan is financial assistance that enables students and parents to borrow money from the federal government, state government or private lenders. These loans must be repaid. Borrowers are responsible for signing a Master Promissory Note for each loan program. When signed, the Master Promissory Note is a binding, legal document through which the borrower agrees to repay the loan. The promissory note should be read carefully and a copy retained for the borrower’s records. Please note students who are non-degree seeking or who are seeking teacher certification after graduation are only eligible for alternative loans in most cases.
