 How to Sign the Direct Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) 

 

SPOTLIGHT

The SRU Financial Aid Office cannot finalize Stafford Loan eligibility until student has 1) completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, 2) completed a Master Promissory Note, and 3) completed Loan Entrance Counseling.

To sign a Master Promissory Note, follow the instructions below:

Step 1 : Collect the information you need to e-sign your MPN:

  • Your driver's license number
  • The name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of two adults with different U.S. addresses, the first of which should be a parent or legal guardian
  • Your federal (FAFSA) PIN number. If you do not have a PIN, you can apply for your PIN at www.pin.ed.gov

Step 2: Go to www.StudentLoans.gov and SIGN IN under "Manage My Direct Loans" (if you have questions when on this site, you can reach a customer service representative at 1-800-557-7394).

  • Select "Complete the Master Promissory Note"
  • Select the Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan type
  • Follow the steps to complete your MPN
  • Helpful Hints:
    • Under the "School and Loan Information" section, you'll have an option to select SRU as your school, however, it may take a few minutes; be patient
    • On the Rights and Responsibilities page, you are required to open all of the Rights and Responsibilities sections before continuing in the MPN process

Step 3: You will receive a .pdf of your MPN. Print a copy for your records.

Step 4: You must hit the SUBMIT BUTTON TO OFFICIALLY SUBMIT YOUR MPN.

  • You will then receive an email confirming the completion of your MPN.

If you have any questions while completing the MPN and/or Entrance Counseling, you may call the Direct Loan Organization Center at 1-800-557-7394.
