Sign the Master Promissory Note (MPN) Online

All first-time borrowers MUST complete an Entrance Counseling Session and sign a Master Promissory Note.   Both requirements can be completed online using the Federal Student Aid web site. 

  • Go to and click the Sign In bar under the Manage My Direct Loan heading.   

You will sign in using the same Federal Student Aid PIN (issued by the U.S. Department of Education) that you used to complete the online FAFSA. You may request a duplicate PIN or change your PIN.

  • Select the option to complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN)
    Select “Subsidized/Unsubsidized” for the type of loan. 
    Complete all four steps and submit.
    Make sure to print a copy of the MPN for your records. 

The Office of Financial Aid will electronically receive the Entrance Counseling and MPN results within 2 – 3 business days.

Your Federal Direct Loan will not credit your account until you have successfully completed both of these requirements.  Your loan(s) may be subject to cancellation if you do not complete Entrance Counseling and sign the Master Promissory Note.
