Important Change Beginning Fall 2010
- Due to Federal Government
changes pertaining to Federal
Financial Aid, hundreds of the
Federal Stafford Loan lenders are
no longer providing loans to
students. Therefore, the Seminary
decided to go 100% with the Federal Direct
Student Loan. Many students are already Direct Loan borrowers, but if not, students
will need to go to the Federal Direct Student Loan website (https://dlenote.ed.gov) and
complete a new Master Promissory Note (MPN). Please feel free to contact the
Financial Aid Office should you have questions or need additional information.
