Previous Loan Recipients from Durham Tech

Students who have received a loan from Durham Tech and who wish to continue to receive a loan must reapply for each academic year. Students who have previously borrowed at Durham Technical Community College (only) may complete the Renewal Loan Request Form online and then print and submit the signed form to the Financial Aid office, Phail Wynn, Jr. Student Services Center, room 1210. The FAFSA must be completed and all follow-up paperwork submitted before the Financial Aid office can accept your loan request. Since you have previously received a loan from Durham Tech, a new eMPN, Entrance Counseling, or attending a Durham Tech Loan Workshop is not required.
