Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN)

If this is your first Federal Direct Student Loan, you must complete and sign an electronic “Master Promissory Note” (MPN) at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action before your loan can disburse. Your FSA ID is required to sign in. If you do not have a FSA ID yet, you can create one here. An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature.

Steps to complete a MPN:

  1. Sign into https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action.
  2. Select Complete Master Promissory Note from the main menu.
  3. Choose Subsidized/Unsubsidized for the type of loan you would like to receive.
  4. Complete the four steps and click submit.

Please allow 7 – 10 days for the processing of the MPN to be viewable on your Anchor Access account.

NOTE: You will also need to complete Entrance Counseling at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action before disbursement.
