Exit Counseling

All students who borrow a Federal Direct and/or Graduate PLUS Loan are required to complete an exit interview before graduation or if enrollment falls below half-time status. Exit Counseling provides useful tips and information to help you manage your loans. The online counseling will walk you through your rights and responsibilities as well as provide useful information regarding repayment options, debt management strategies, forbearance, deferment, cancellation options, consolidation, and tax benefits.
