Federal Direct Stafford Loans
The Master’s College & Seminary will participate in the Federal Direct Loan Student Program (FDSLP) beginning with the 2010-2011 school year. In this program, the federal government acts as the lender referred to as “Direct Loans,” and the Stafford Loans are serviced by familiar agencies such as Sallie Mae, Great Lakes, PHEAA, and Nelnet. All new and continuing students who accept Stafford Loans will be required to complete the following steps even if they have done so in prior years. (Please click on the blue links below.)
- Entrance Loan Counseling is an on-line tutorial about the Stafford Loan(s) you have accepted. The session takes about 30 minutes to finish and is required before the funds for your loan(s) can be processed. Click on “Sign In.” You will need your government PIN. Be sure to complete the quiz at the end. (Search “Master’s” to find our school.)
- The Master Promissory Note is the loan application or “promise to pay.” Click on “Sign In” to get started. You will need to provide two references with separate addresses. Use your government PIN to e-sign this document.
