On behalf of the federal government, the Department of Education will electronically transmit the loan funds to Bryn Mawr College each semester. The loan is credited to the student’s account once she completes a loan entrance interview and signs a master promissory note (MPN). The Office of Financial Aid will notify the student when the funds have been credited. Loan funds are scheduled to be disbursed on the first day of classes. When the student borrows for the entire year, one-half of the loan proceeds will be credited to the student account in the fall and the remaining half in the spring. If the student borrows for only one semester, the loan funds will be credited in a single installment during the term for which she borrowed.
