Entrance Counseling

Federal regulations also require all first-time Federal Direct Loan borrowers to participate in a one-time loan entrance counseling session. The purpose of this counseling is to provide students with information that will help them understand their rights and responsibilities and may be completed online at You must allow enough time to complete the entire process in a single session.  If you exit the website before completing the entrance counseling and return later, you will have to start over from the beginning.

The signed master promissory note (MPN) and entrance counseling must be completed prior to any loan funds being disbursed to your student account.

We strongly recommend that you complete the MPN and entrance counseling electronically.  However, if you do not have access to a computer or simply prefer to complete a paper promissory note and entrance counseling, you may request both by contacting the Financial Aid Office at (732) 571-3463 or emailing the office at You may also visit the Financial Aid Office in person in Wilson Hall, Room 108.
