Direct Student Loans

The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program allows students to borrow money to help pay for and defer the cost of their college education.  These programs require that all funds be repaid.

First-time borrowers are required to complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) before the loans can be disbursed.  Exit counseling is also required when a student drops below half-time enrollment or graduates.  You may complete Entrance Counseling, MPN or Exit Counseling electronically via the Student Loans website at
