Loan Exit Counseling is federally mandated in order to help the student understand how to
manage their student loan debt. Accumulating student loan debt can be very easy; however,
repayment can present the student with challenges and responsibilities that require a little more
skill to manage. Completing the Exit Counseling does not mean that a student cannot apply for
future loans. Exit Counseling provides the student with the basic tools for navigating the
information on loan repayment options, a record of who holds the loans, a history of the
students’ loans along with money management tips.
Who is required to complete Exit Counseling?
Loan Exit Counseling is required for borrowers of Federal Stafford Loan(s) and Federal Direct
Loan(s) if the following conditions apply:
If you currently are not enrolled at least half time (6 credits),
If you hav
e graduated or plan to graduate by the end of the semester, or
If you plan to transfer to another school by the end of the semester.
A holdis placed on the student’s account blocking future registration, viewing of grades and
receiving transcripts. Once the counseling requirement is met the hold can be removed
allowing access to records.
