Before we can process any Federal Loan request, you will need to complete a Direct Loan MPN. Students are strongly encouraged to make an electronic application via Student Loans.
An MPN will need to be completed for each type of loan you intend to borrow, including:
- Direct Loan Subsidized/Unsubsidized
A new MPN will be required for each academic year (loan period) that you borrow.
The MPN is a binding legal document between you and the U.S. Department of Education (ED) that outlines the terms of your loan.
Please note, you should keep a copy for your own personal reference and forward an electronic copy to the University (see Step 7).
If you would require a paper copy of your MPN to sign, you will need to request one by contacting COD Applicant Services on 1-800-557-7394.
Students borrowing a Private Loan (Sallie Mae) will be required to complete an e-Promissory Note as part of the loan application. For more information, visit our Private Loans webpage.
