Loan Processing

You must complete the following 2 steps to finalize processing of an educational loan request:

  1. Complete Entrance Counseling at https://studentloans.gov.
  2. Complete and Sign your electronic Master Promissory Note at https://studentloans.gov. Select Complete New MPN for Student Loans on the left. You will use your federal PIN number to sign your promissory note. This is the same PIN number used to complete the FAFSA application. If you do not have a PIN number, you should first register for a PIN number at http://www.pin.ed.gov/PINWebApp/pinindex.jsp (allow 3 to 5 days) before attempting to complete step 2.
