The MPN is a legal document in which you promise to repay your loan(s) and any accrued interest and fees to the Department. It also explains the terms and conditions of your loan(s). Once you've submitted the MPN and it's been accepted, you will not have to fill out a new MPN for future loans you receive. You may borrow additional Direct Loans on a single MPN for up to 10 years.
