Exit Counseling

The exit counseling session is intended to help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower. This counseling session may provide helpful tips and information to help you manage your loans.

Please note that you must complete the entire session once you begin. If you exit the counseling before completing the session and return later, you will need to start over from the beginning. Be prepared to provide your driver's license number (if you have one), addresses, and phone numbers of your next of kin, two references who live in the United States, and your future employer (if known).
