Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling

The MPN is your promise that you will repay these funds.

Students borrowing for the first time at Fordham are required by federal regulations to complete an Entrance Counseling before proceeds of the loan (one half each semester) can be credited to your student account. The Entrance Counseling is an online tutorial that gives you more details about your loan including your rights and responsibilities.

Both can be completed at http://studentloans.gov.

Students who received funds from the Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loan program at Fordham in prior years do NOT have to complete another MPN or Entrance Counseling Session.

You may only receive Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loan funds after the FAFSA, Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling have been completed. You can confirm that Fordham has received your completed MPN and Entrance Counseling by clicking on the Documents tab of the Financial Aid section of your My.Fordham account.
