Requesting and Signing a Paper Perkins MPN

This section provides an overview of paper MPN requests and lists the pages used to request and sign a paper Perkins MPN.

Regulations require that a student (borrower) be given the opportunity to exit the Perkins eMPN process, and instead, request a paper Perkins MPN. When the student requests a paper Perkins MPN, the system generates a PDF version of the Perkins MPN with both Sections A and B completed. The system instructs the student to print, complete, and return the Perkins MPN to the financial aid office.

When the system generates a paper Perkins MPN, it creates a Perkins MPN record with the MPN format equal to paper. The system considers this Perkins MPN invalid until a signature date is entered.

Note: If the paper Perkins MPN remains invalid, the student can return and attempt the Perkins eMPN process again. If the student completes and electronically signs the Perkins MPN, the system cancels the previous paper Perkins MPN and creates a subsequent Perkins MPN indicating a completed electronic Perkins MPN.
