Exit Loan Counseling

Before you withdraw, graduate, or drop below half-time attendance, regulations require that you complete an exit counseling session for your Federal Student Loans. Exit Counseling is important because it will explain your rights and responsibilities as a borrower, as well as your service obligations. It is a tool that provides information and terms to help you make the right choices in regards to your student loans. Exit Counseling helps prepare you for your new responsibilities, while ensuring that you make the most of your higher education and enjoy a worry free repayment process.

Please complete the following items before your scheduled Exit Loan Counseling session:

1. Print and review your federal loan history on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). You will need the PIN number used to file your FAFSA.  If you do not have your PIN number it can be obtained here.  You may also view your loan history through the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation (TGSLC) if they guaranteed your loans.

2. Complete the on-line Exit Counseling requirement

3. Review the following resources for additional exit counseling information:
