MPN and Loan Processing

Perkins Loan Processing

All Perkins Loan borrowers are required to complete Perkins Loan Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN). Students will be prompted to complete the entrance counseling during the MPN process. The loan will not be disbursed to the student unless Entrance Loan Counseling and Master Promissory Note are completed!

You will need to accept the award through your e-hive account.

The MPN will not be available online until 48 hours after you accept the Perkins Loan in your e-hive account.

The goal of this required online tutorial is to make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities of borrowing a Perkins loan.

You must have the following information ready prior to completing the process:

  • Name
  • Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth (DOB)
  • Address and phone number
  • Information about three personal references (name, address, e-mail and phone number)
