Instructions for Master Promissory Note (MPN) & Entrance Counseling

The Master Promissory Note (MPN) serves as the official legal document for the lender.  By signing an MPN the student is authorizing the lender to provide student loan funds as well as promising to pay those funds back to the lender at the appropriate time. The MPN is valid for 10 years.  Therefore this step needs to completed only once for each student (as opposed to the FAFSA, which needs to be renewed annually).
