Student Loan Process
You will receive confirmation messages at the end of each step to ensure they have been properly submitted. JWCC will be notified once the step(s) are completed. The last 2 steps are located at the same website (studentaid.gov). You'll need your FSA ID in order to log in.
- Loan Request Application This step is required for ALL JWCC loan borrowers. This application is used to figure out how much your loan will be and the semester(s) you wish to take out a loan.
- Entrance Counseling at the studentaid.gov website. This step is required for all NEW loan borrowers. If you've had a student loan processed at JWCC or another institution in the past, you may skip this step.
- Master Promissory Note (subsidized/unsubsidized loans) at the studentaid.gov website. This step is required for all NEW Direct Loan borrowers. If you've had a Direct Loan disbursed at JWCC or another institution, you may skip this step. To double-check, you can sign into your account at studentloans.gov to confirm an active Direct Loan MPN is on file.
