Loan Application and Counseling
Students can apply for a loan as well as perform both Entrance and Exit counseling for the Federal Direct Student Loans online here.
Important Information for Loan Borrowers:
All new borrowers at Bucks County Community College must complete a new Master Promissory Note (MPN) to receive a Federal Direct Student Loan. Returning borrowers with a prior disbursement will be able to use their active promissory note, but must complete Step #3 to receive a loan for the current academic year.
Prior MPN’s completed with any other lending agency will no longer be valid, and cannot be used to obtain student loan funds.
If you indicated on your FAFSA that you are interested in a loan for the 2014-15 academic year, you will be required to complete the following 3 steps to receive a loan. (RETURNING STUDENTS THAT HAD A PRIOR DISBURSEMENT ONLY NEED TO COMPLETE STEP #3)
Complete a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN)/Loan Application at: www.StudentLoans.gov
Entrance Counseling: All new student borrowers are required to complete Entrance Counseling for their loans at: www.StudentLoans.gov
Returning students: If we are able to determine that a student has had a prior Federal Stafford Loan, we will not require the completion of the Federal Direct Loan Entrance Counseling.
