INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISBURSEMENT OF FEDERAL PERKINS OR HEALTH PROFESSIONS LOANS

To complete your Perkins and/or Health Professions Loan promissory note on-line, sign into http://stuinfo.msu.edu/ and select the appropriate loan (Perkins, Health Professions) under the "University Loans" heading.

GENERAL PERKINS LOAN NOTE INFORMATION

Having your Perkins Loan Note Mailed For Signature

If you have elected to manually sign a paper MPN, your Perkins loan note(s) and associated forms need to be completely filled out and returned to Michigan State University so your Federal Perkins proceeds can be applied to your student account. Upon receipt, MSU will finalize your Perkins disbursement (converting your pending aid to real aid). Incomplete forms having to be returned may potentially delay the disbursement of your Perkins loan.

Please read the loan note mailed to you in its entirety, retaining one copy for your records.

Master Promissory Note For Perkins Loans

You must complete or correct all missing information in Section A. In addition, the Rights and Responsibility Statement and Personal and Confidential Information statement discussed below must be completed and returned.

Your Perkins Master Promissory Note (MPN) will remain open until one of the following occurs:

  • Ten years have expired since the date you signed the MPN.
  • Twelve months have expired since the date you signed the MPN and you have not received any disbursements under the MPN.
  • After signing, you may voluntarily choose to expire the note. If you decide to voluntarily expire your note, please go to http://stuinfo.msu.edu/, select Electronic Promissory Notes and select the link marked expire note. Please note that if you decide to expire the Perkins MPN no further Perkins awards will be disbursed to you unless you sign another MPN.

You also have the option of declining an individual disbursement. If you wish to decline an individual disbursement there is no need to expire the entire note. To decline a disbursement please go to StuInfo and select Financial Aid (check your aid) and under Option 4. Loan actions select Perkins Loans and follow the instructions on how to decline a disbursement.

You must be registered as a FULL TIME student to be eligible to have your Perkins loan disbursed (exceptions to this rule may apply during certain summer semesters, depending on the availability of funds). If you are not registered as a full time student your Perkins loan will not be disbursed. If you add enough credits to become full time before the fifth day of the semester and you have returned all required documents to the Federal Loans office, your Perkins loan will automatically be disbursed. After that date, your Perkins loan award may be canceled.
