Direct Loan Entrance Counseling - Spring 2018
If you are awarded a Direct Stafford Loan for the first time at FIT, you must complete an entrance counseling session and complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) before your loan funds can be disbursed. If you were unable to attend the sessions Financial Aid Services hosted on-campus at the beginning of the semester, you can still complete both the counseling session and the MPN online at StudentLoans.gov.
The Excelsior Scholarship application deadline for Spring 2018 has passed. You may go to the Excelsior Scholarship Fact Sheet and submit your email to be notified when the next application will be available. You can see the most current information online at the Excelsior Scholarship Application page and the Excelsior Scholarship FAQ's.
