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.
