How do I complete my federal loan requirements for Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized/PLUS Loans?

How to complete federal requirements for Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans.

  • Go to and click “Sign In” - Use your FSA ID to sign in
    • All borrowers are required to complete both Loan Counseling and a Loan Agreement for their Federal Direct Loans.
  • Select “Complete Loan Counseling”
    • Complete “Entrance Counseling” by clicking start.
  • Select “Loan Agreement”
    • Select the appropriate Master Promissory Note (MPN) for your type of loan.

Once this is complete, you will get an e-mail confirmation from Direct Loans - make sure that all steps have been completed.  If you receive the confirmation e-mail, you do not need to check with SJU on the status of the loan.
