Federal Direct Loans

How can I receive federal loans?

The Federal Direct Loan Program provides financial assistance for undergraduate students attending post-secondary schools on at least a half-time basis.

It is strongly recommended that you borrow only what you need for educational expenses. You must repay student loans regardless of future circumstances.

Student’s applying for a Federal Direct Loan for the first time at Henderson Community College must:

• Complete the Entrance Counseling online.
• Complete a new master Promissory Note online.
• Students must then request loans online on their KCTCS Student Self-Service account by clicking on “Request Loans” under the “Finances” section.

NOTE: Loan funds are not disbursed until 30 days from the first day of class, and refunds are not typically issued until the Thursday following the disbursement date.
