Federal Direct Loan Program

Welcome to the Federal Direct Loan Program page for LMU. To proceed with the online process, please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to and complete the Federal Direct Loan entrance counseling.  Use your FSA ID to login to the website.  Once logged in, click on “Complete Counseling” and then select "Entrance Counseling" to begin the process.  If this is the first time you have received a loan at LMU, you must complete online entrance counseling to advise you of your borrower rights and responsibilities.  For assistance with this process, you may contact Direct Loans at 1.800.848.0979.
  2. Go to and complete the Electronic Master Promissory Note (eMPN). You will need to sign in with your FSA ID and then click on “Complete a Master Promissory Note.”  On the next page, specify the Direct Loan MPN type as  “Subsidized/Unsubsidized MPN” and proceed.  For assistance with this process, you may contact Direct Loans at 1.800.557.7394.

    NOTE: LMU must receive confirmation of both your entrance counseling and Master Promissory Note before a loan will be certified and available for use toward enrollment expenses.


Please note that confirmation from this process will be sent to LMU by the Department of Education.
