Learn your loan rights, requirements, and responsibilities.
Before receiving your first Federal Direct Loan at CU Anschutz, the U.S. Department of Education requires that you complete the online Loan Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN).
The counseling covers your rights and responsibilities, interest rates, repayment options, and the consequences of default or not repaying your loan.
Complete the online Entrance Counseling (be sure to select the University of Colorado Denver school code 004508 as your college). Use your FSA ID to log in and complete it. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete the counseling session.

Complete the online MPN at the Federal Student Aid site after completing your entrance counseling, or you can return later to complete it by logging in with your FSA ID.
