Entrance and Exit Counseling
Federal Direct Loan student borrowers are required to complete mandatory on-line entrance and exit counseling. The purpose of the counseling is to provide the student with information regarding their rights and responsibilities; the commitment that comes with the acceptance of a student loan; and to help the student understand how to manage their student loans. It is important for all borrowers to realize that student loans are not grants or scholarships; they require repayment.
You will need to have an FSA ID (user name and password) to access the entrance and exit counseling.
Online entrance counseling is also required for all Direct and Graduate and parent PLUS loan borrowers. Entrance counseling takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. After signing in on the www.studentloans.gov website to complete entrance counseling, be sure to click on the Entrance Counseling link, not the Financial Awareness Counseling link. Federal Direct Stafford, Graduate and parent PLUS loans will not disburse until entrance counseling has been completed.
All student borrowers who leave the institution either by graduating, withdrawing, or failing to return for a subsequent semester are required by federal law to complete exit counseling on the web. Federal Direct Loan exit counseling is available at www.studentloans.gov. Stude
