Important Loan Information for New Students!

Are you counting on Federal Direct Student Loans to help you cover your expenses for college? If you are a first time borrower, you will need to complete Entrance Loan Counseling and a Master Promissory Note. If you have used student loans in the past at Tusculum College, you will still need to complete a new MPN for the Direct Lending Program. Failure to complete these steps could result in your account being placed on hold because your financial obligations with Tusculum College will not have been met. The Financial Aid Staff is always ready to assist you with any questions that you might have by contacting us at
