E-sign the Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN)

Students borrowing a Federal Direct loan must complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) before loan money can be disbursed. Once a Federal Direct Loan MPN is completed and the loan is disbursed to your student account, you do not have to sign a Federal Direct Loan MPN again (it is valid for 10 years once your first loan installment disburses).

To complete the Federal Direct Loan MPN, visit studentloans.gov. You will need your U.S. Department of Education FSA ID to sign your Federal Direct Loan MPN electronically. After logging in to studentloans.gov, click Complete Loan Agreement and you will be presented with 3 types of MPNs and must choose the appropriate MPN for the type of Federal Direct Loan (Subsidized/Unsubsidized, Graduate PLUS, Parent PLUS) for which you need to sign an MPN.

After you sign your Federal Direct Loan MPN, electronic notification from the U.S. Department of Education will be sent to Marshall University.
