your financial aid eligibility must already be determined BEFORE you can apply for a loan and continue with the steps below. To view your financial aid eligibility, log into My Canyons at my.canyons.edu and click on "Financial Aid Status".
First, complete a MANDATORY Loan Counseling Entrance Exam ONLINE. This is required each academic year you request a Direct Loan.
Next, complete the Direct Loan Request Worksheet. You are permitted no more than two loan requests per academic year. Requests for less than $200 in loans cannot be processed. Your financial aid eligibility must already be determined by the Financial Aid Office BEFORE you can apply for a loan and continue these steps. Submit your COMPLETED Direct Loan Request Worksheet to the Financial Aid Office. Requests submitted with missing or blank information will be considered INCOMPLETE and will not be processed.
Students requesting a change to their previously submitted 2013-2014 Direct Loan Request must complete the Direct Loan Status Change Request. Students are only permitted ONE change request per academic year. Click here to download the Direct Loan Status Change Request.
Wait 5 business days AFTER finishing both Steps 1 and 2 above
Then, complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) online. You will be signing your MPN online with your FAFSA Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you have already signed a MPN for a Direct Loan, that has NOT expired, you do not need to complete this step.
It is your responsibility to complete a MANDATORY Online Loan Counseling Exit Exam BEFORE you leave College of the Canyons, fall below half-time status, or stop attending. If you fail to complete this requirement, your academic records will be placed on an administrative hold preventing you from receiving official transcripts or registering for classes.
In order to receive your loan disbursement on the published date you must complete steps 1-3 of the loan application process 10 business days before the published disbursement date.
