School certification is a process for MPOWER to confirm the information on your application with your school. We confirm your graduation date, program, student status (full time/part time), loan period, loan amount, and requested disbursement date(s). During this process, MPOWER communicates directly with your school, and no additional documents are required from you at this time.
The process works like this: MPOWER sends a request form to your school by either electronically via ELM or Great Lakes, or sent via fax. ELM and Great lakes are third-party communication systems used by private lenders and schools to transmit information.
