Receiving Financial Aid - Step 10

Accept or decline each award through myUNT. You can also make a decision later.

If you are offered a direct loan, you can accept the total amount offered, or request a lesser amount. The option to request a lesser amount will become available once you accept the loan(s) through myUNT.

If you applied for a Stafford Loan, the loan application data will be electronically sent to the Department of Education. You’ll need to check your To Do List for any updates. All UNT Stafford Loan borrowers must complete entrance counseling, which can be done at StudentLoans.gov. A Master Promissory Note (MPN) is also required for all students. Entrance Counseling and MPN will be listed on your To Do List when available to complete.

If you applied for a PLUS loan, the loan application data will be electronically sent to the Department of Education for a credit check. If your credit is approved, the parent borrower will need to complete a Master Promissory Note on StudentLoans.gov. If your credit is denied, the Department of Education will mail information to the parent concerning the credit decision with the option to resolve the issue, use a co-endorser, or not pursue PLUS. If a parent will not pursue PLUS, SFAS will offer an additional Unsubsidized Stafford loan to the student.
