Entrance Counseling and Promissory Note Signing

Entrance counseling is a federal and institutional requirement for all student loan borrowers.

All first-time Stafford Loan and borrowers must complete entrance counseling and sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN) for each type of loan. These interactive counseling sessions will help you to understand the rights and responsibilities that come with your student loan(s).

For most students, the MPN will cover the loans for their entire time at Brandeis University. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services at 781-736-3700.
