Completing your Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling

A Master Promissory Note (MPN) must be completed before your first loan can be processed for disbursement. Once you have signed your MPN you will not need to complete another MPN for any future Direct Loans at Lewis-Clark State College.

If you are a first time borrower, you will also need to complete the online Entrance Counseling session. An Entrance Counseling session must be completed before your first disbursement can be credited to your student account.

Step 1 - Log on to www.studentloans.gov

Step 2 - Click on the green "Sign In" button in the "Manage My Direct Loan" box.

Step 3 - Enter your personal information including your FAFSA PIN.

Step 4 - Choose "Complete Master Promissory Note" and begin MPN completion.

To complete Entrance Counseling, follow steps 1-3 and choose "Complete Counseling" and choose Entrance Counseling.

**Perkins and BSN Promissory Notes and entrance and exit counseling are performed in the LCSC Controller's Office.**
