Loan Disbursement Requirements
These additional steps must be completed if you plan to accept student loans.
Entrance Counseling Requirement
Entrance counseling is required for all first-time student Direct Loan borrowers. The student must complete the Loan Entrance Counseling on the Federal Student Aid website, by signing in with their FSA ID. For subsidized and unsubsidized loans, the Loan Entrance Counseling Session must be completed by the student.
Master Promissory Note Requirement
As a first time borrower at UWG, you will be required to complete an electronic Master Promissory Note (MPN). The student must complete the MPN on the Federal Student Aid website, by signing in with their FSA ID. For subsidized and unsubsidized loans, the MPN must be completed by the student.
Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment
If this is your first time accepting a federal student loan, you are acknowledging that you understand your responsibility to repay your loan. If you have existing federal student loans, you are acknowledging that you understand how much you owe and how much more you can borrow. As noted, completion of this is optional at this time.
PLUS Loan Counseling
This is only required of a Parent PLUS Loan borrower if the U.S. Department of Education has informed the parent that they have an adverse credit history and have obtained an endorser or documented to the satisfaction of the U.S. Department of Education that there are extenuating circumstances related to your adverse credit history. This can be completed on the Federal Student Aid site by signing in with an FSA ID. This must be completed by the Parent PLUS Loan borrower, not the student.

For subsidized and unsubsidized loans, the Loan Exit Counseling Session must be completed by the student.
