2012-2013 Federal Direct Loan Application Procedures
All students wishing to borrow subsidized and/or unsubsidized Direct Loans must have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete the following steps for subsidized and/or unsubsidized Direct Loans to be certified and received by Middlesex County College.
STEP 1: Apply for a Direct Loan
STEP 2: ‘Sign Master Promissory Note’
The MPN is a legal document in which you promise to repay your loan(s) and any accrued interest and fees to the U.S. Department of Education. It also explains the terms and conditions of your loan(s). The MPN is valid for up to 10 years. It must be completed in order for your Direct Loan funds to be disbursed to your student account. Middlesex County College will be informed electronically when you have successfully completed this requirement.
It is only necessary to complete one MPN and one Entrance Counseling session even if you have been awarded both the subsidized and unsubsidized Direct Loan. These requirements must be met in order for your Federal Direct Loan award(s) to be considered for billing purposes on your student account.
