How do I sign a Promissory Note?

  • Go to the following website: http://www.ecsi.net/prom3p
  • Click on "Get Started"
  • Enter: Social Security Number, Last Name, Date of Birth
  • Click on "Submit"
  • Follow the directions to electronically sign your loan(s).

If you have signed a Federal Perkins or Health Professions loan, it will take approximately five business days for your promissory note to process. After signing your promissory note, the federal government requires a three day wait period in which the borrower has the right to cancel the loan. After the wait period, if you have direct deposit information on file with the Bursar's Office, it will take approximately two days for Purdue University to process the loan. Students without direct deposit on file with the Purdue University Bursar's Office will have a longer processing time.
