Types of Assistance

SUNY Downstate Medical Center is committed to helping students meet their educational expenses. Financial Aid is granted on the basis of need, merit or a combination of both. Our funding is primarily from federal and state resources which include grants, scholarships, loans, and/or college work-study. 

Each academic year, you need to accept, decrease, or decline your loans via Banner Self Service

First-time borrowers also need to complete Loan Entrance Counseling and Complete a Master Promissory Note (sign a MPN). In most cases, you will only need to complete these items once during your college career.

Your Subsidized/Unsubsidized/Graduate plus loans will appear as a credit on your tuition bill after you complete these requirements.

 If you have technical difficulty signing the MPN, please contact the U.S. Department of Education's Student Loan Support Center at 800-557-7394.
