Accepting a LOAN

If you would like to receive a federal student loan, you may have to complete Entrance Loan Counseling, and E-Sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN).

If you are required to completed either Entrance Loan Counseling or sign a MPN, you will have an Unsatisfied Requirement listed in your Financial Aid Requirements. Only students accepting a loan must complete these requirements.

Entrance Loan Counseling is required for all first time borrowers and is completed at www.studentloans.gov.

E-sign your MPN at www.studentloans.gov three to five business days after you accept your loan in your myUVU student account.

You must be enrolled at least half-time to receive a loan.

Disbursement of FEDERAL STUDENT AID

Your federal student aid will automatically apply toward your tuition and fees beginning on the first day of your classes.

Your aid will only disburse if you have completed all outstanding requirements, and the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office has processed any additional paperwork that was received.

To ensure your federal student aid is available to you on the first day of your classes, you must have a completed financial aid file by the following dates:

  • Fall: August 1
  • Spring: December 1
  • Summer: April 1

 Federal student aid will only pay for courses that are needed to complete your academic program.

Receiving your excess FEDERAL STUDENT AID

Once tuition and fees have been paid, any excess aid will be returned to you in one of the following ways:

  1. Enroll in direct deposit (for the banking institution of your choice) by signing up for eRefund in your myUVU student account using your bank's routing number and your bank account number:
    • Go to STUDENTS
    • PAYING FOR MY EDUCATION
    • eREFUND ENROLLMENT
  2. Receive a paper check through the U.S. Postal Service to the local address listed in your myUVU student account.

Not all students will receive a refund of their federal student aid. If your tuition and fee balance is more than the federal aid that you receive, you will need to enroll in a tuition payment plan or pay the balance in full.
