as soon as possible to ensure Notre Dame can start processing your loan(s) in the month of June.
Complete Entrance Loan Counseling
Click "Sign In" using Student's Federal Student Aid PIN
Select "Complete Entrance Counseling"
The interactive entrance counseling session helps you to understand your loan responsibilities and provides tools to develop a budget for managing educational expenses. Entrance counseling takes 20-30 minutes to complete and requires your Federal Student Aid PIN (used to complete your FAFSA).
Master Promissory Note
Complete/Submit "Master Promissory Note"
The Master Promissory Note (MPN) is a legal document in which you promise to repay your loan and any accrued interest and fees to the Department of Education. The MPN also offers details on the terms and conditions of the loan. Completion of the MPN takes up to 30 minutes and requires the following:
- The names, addresses, and phone numbers of two references
- Your driver’s license number (if applicable)
Loan Process Overview
- The U.S. Department of Education will notify Notre Dame after you have completed entrance counseling and signed your MPN.
- You will receive a disclosure statement from the U.S. Department of Education providing specific information about your loan, including loan amount, fees, and the expected disbursement dates.
- To ensure your loan disbursement is credited to your University account for the start of the fall term, complete the two steps above by the middle of June.
- The Office of Financial Aid will notify you via email when your loan funds have been disbursed to your University account.
- Loan applications cannot be processed after the academic year ends or if the student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact our office.
