Loan Exit Counseling

You may review loan balances and lender information for all student loans you have received at Please review the NSLDS website referenced above carefully to ensure all the information is correct. 

The goal of exit counseling is to help you understand your responsibilities when repaying your federal student loan. If you are a student who has received subsidized, unsubsidized, or PLUS loans under the Direct Loan Program or the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program*, you must complete exit counseling. 


*Note: No new loans have been made under the FFEL Program since June 30, 2010.

When you graduate, leave school or drop below half-time enrollment, you will be required to complete exit counseling. The exit counseling process must be completed in a single session and it usually takes 20-30 minutes. 

To start your exit counseling process please visit Exit Counseling at Federal Student Aid website. 

It is very important that you meet your student loan repayment responsibilities. If you experience problems in making payments, please contact your loan servicer. You will be able to identify your loan servicer on the aforenoted website. Loan default has serious consequences. Therefore, please use the resources available if you encounter problems repaying your student loan.

If you have questions or need future assistance, please contact Financial Aid Department.
