The latest update for our new students joining the Cornish community this Fall.
We will be contacting students – and their parents – throughout the summer with the various steps to be taken between now and your arrival on campus. Bookmark this blog post and we’ll keep it updated for you. You can also find information for new students here.
If student loans will help you pay for college, you need to complete the following tasks as soon as possible. (And if you’ve finished them, good job!)
Acceptance of Loans - are you borrowing or declining the loans? Complete this form and return to the Cornish Financial Aid Office.
For Loan Borrowers: complete a Master Promissory Note - choose the green “Sign In” box and then select “Sign Master Promissory Note.”
For Parent Loan Borrowers - complete a Master Promissory Note - choose the green “Sign In” box, using the Parent PIN from your FAFSA. Select “Sign Master Promissory Note.”
Complete Entrance Loan Counseling - Click the green “Sign In” box and then select “Complete Counseling.”
