If you received campus-based loans, i.e. University and/or Loans for Disadvantaged Students, etc., in addition to or in lieu of Federal Direct Loans, you must complete the Exit Counseling requirement. Follow the link below then complete the step by step instructions.

An updated summary of your educational indebtedness will be sent to you in late Spring quarter along with a Loan Repayment Record. Please review these forms carefully and inform us of any corrections. 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.

If you have any questions after reviewing all of the information, contact us for further loan repayment counseling or your loan servicer.

Good luck to you in your future endeavors!
