If Federal Direct Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized loans are listed on your award letter, you are required to complete a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling before your loans can be disbursed and credited to your account. To ensure that students have control over borrowing, the Financial Aid Office at Huston-Tillotson University uses a passive confirmation process for students to accept loans. What this means is, if you do not want the loan(s) listed on your award letter you must contact the Financial Aid Office in writing to request that the loan be removed. You may also decline the loan(s) by completing the Loan Cancellation Request Form
