Accept Your Award

When you have completed all necessary steps in the financial aid process, award amounts are determined and posted on your  Student Self-Service . The maximum amount of grants and loans in which you are eligible are offered  automatically. Grants are accepted automatically; however, if you chose to use a loan you must accept it in Self Service. Loan amounts may be decreased in the acceptance process if the full amount is not desired. It can take up to 10 business days for you to have an award to be packaged. In order to receive a Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized loan, all first-time borrowers enrolling at Hopkinsville must complete Entrance Counseling. Students must also have a valid Master Promissory Note (MPN) on file with the US Department of Education. An MPN from a previous school may still be used at Hopkinsville as long as it has not expired. Entrance Counseling and the MPN can be completed at the Federal Direct Loan web site www.studentloans.gov.
