Loan Processing and Requirements 

In order to process your Federal Direct Loan (subsidized or unsubsidized), you will need to complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Loan Entrance Counseling. Please follow the instructions below to complete the MPN and Entrance Counseling electronically.

  1. Go to https://studentloans.gov.
  2. Click on the green button to sign in.  You will need your social security number and your FSA ID number.  If you cannot remember your FSA ID# , you can retrieve it at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm.
  3. After signing in, complete your MPN.
  4. You will need to e-sign your MPN with your FSA ID number that you used to e-sign your FAFSA.
