The Master Promissory Note (MPN) is essentially your promise to repay your federal student loans. Like the Entrance Counseling, the MPN can be found by logging in to studentloans.gov.
If you are in need of additional funding, your parents can apply for a Parent Plus Loan through studentloans.gov as well. This loan is taken by your parents, and, as such, becomes their financial responsibility.
Parents log in to studentloans.gov in much the same way that students do. The only difference is that parents use their own parent federal PIN.
After signing in, parents will select Star PLUS Application Process.

Alternative student loans are also available through private lenders. Here are some links that will help you compare different lending programs if you are looking for additional funding:
