Exit Counseling

What is Exit Counseling?

Exit counseling provides important information to prepare you to repay your federal student loan(s).

If you have received a subsidized, unsubsidized or PLUS loan under the Direct Loan Program or the FFEL Program, you must complete exit counseling each time you:

  • Drop below half-time enrollment
  • Graduate
  • Withdraw from school

Note: The FFEL Program ended June 30, 2010 and no new loans have been made under the FFEL Program after that date.

Who should complete this?

Students who have received a subsidized, unsubsidized or PLUS loan(s) under the Direct Loan Program or the FFEL Program, must complete exit counseling each time they drop below half-time enrollment, graduate, or leave school.

How long will it take?

The entire online counseling process must be completed in a single session. Most people complete counseling in 20-30 minutes.

What do I need?

  • Verified FSA ID
  • Details on your income, financial aid, and living expenses
  • References: names, addresses, e-mail addresses and phone numbers of next of kin.
