Students who are borrowing through the Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program for the first time at Kean University, must complete Master Promissory Note.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE MASTER PROMISSORY NOTE
You may choose to fill out a paper promissory note which will be mailed from Loan Origination Center or you may complete MPN on-line. HOWEVER, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU SIGN THE MPN ONLINE. The online process allows you direct access to your records online. You can review federal aid history, consolidate loans, and correct application data.
