Health Professions (Pharmacy) Student Loan Promissory Note

Only students officially offered a Health Professions Student Loan via their financial aid award offer can be funded through this program. In order to meet the requirements for the accepted loan, you must complete the appropriate master promissory note and associated paperwork.

The Health Professions Student Loan is often referred to as a Pharmacy Loan at UC since Pharmacy students are the only ones eligible to receive it. 

Read, complete and submit the appropriate paperwork for your Health Professions Student Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) to be valid and your accepted loan funds disbursed to your bill.

It may take up to 3 days after completing the promissory note that all systems will be updated. Once the updates have occurred, your loan will be ready for disbursement based on the terms of your loan.
