Graduating Pharmacy Students

Congratulations! As you prepare to graduate from the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Financial Aid Office has prepared this page to assist you in the repayment of your educational loans. Federal regulation requires anyone who has ever received an educational loan at UCSD to satisfactorily complete an Exit Counseling session upon graduation.

If you received Federal Direct Loans, i.e. Stafford, Direct and/or Grad PLUS Loans, Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized, please complete the exit counseling requirement. Choose the tab for Graduate/Professional Students and follow the instructions. 

If you received campus-based loans, i.e. University Loan or Health Professional Service Loans, in addition to or in lieu of Federal Direct Loans, you must complete the Exit Counseling requirement by following the link to the Student Business Services Office website. Follow the step by step instructions for completing the exit counseling.

Shortly after graduation, an updated summary of your educational indebtedness will be sent to you along with a Loan Repayment Record. Please review these forms carefully and inform us of any corrections. Please be aware that this summary is an estimate only as we do not have current information on your pre-matriculation debt, accrued and/or paid interest on loans such as Unsubsidized Stafford and/or GradPLUS or Alternative Loans or loans paid off with Consolidation Loans.
