The Master Promissory Note (MPN) process is a product of Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI). With the ECSI system you will be able to complete, review and print your promissory note using your web browser. At the end of this process, you will be given an individualized ECSI pin number, which will allow you to review your loan account from disbursement through repayment in full.

Your loan is still owned by the University of Wisconsin. If you have questions or concerns please contact the UW Student Loan Office at (608) 262-1791 or via email at
