Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loans
All new students and students applying for financial aid for the first time MUST complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) for both federal Direct Loans and federal Direct Grad PLUSLoans at https://StudentLoans.gov. Our school is listed as “NY Coll of Osteo Med @ NYIT”.
Students who utilized an endorser for their Direct Grad PLUS must complete a new MPN for each loan or increase.
Failure to complete a new MPN will result in a delay of your refund. The school will not issue any emergency refunds.
