Entrance & Exit Counseling
Loan counseling is a required means of helping you understand your rights and responsibilities regarding your loan. Entrance counseling must be completed before the first disbursement of a loan. Exit counseling must be completed before graduation or otherwise leaving school.
If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
You can complete the entrance counseling online at the StudentAid.gov website.
You may complete your exit counseling online at the StudentAid.gov website.
You will need your Social Security number, FSA ID, and the name and addresses of your nearest relative and two personal references to complete the session.
When you have finished your exit counseling, remember to print your completion certificate.
If you need to get a Separation Form signed for Financial Aid, all you need to do is bring your completion certificate into the Financial Aid Office and our Front Desk representative will be able to sign off.
