Federal regulations require that students who have borrowed Federal Student Loans (Stafford Loans, Direct Loans, and/or Perkins Loans) and are graduating, transferring or resigning, planning to be enrolled less than half-time, or otherwise ceasing enrollment must attend an exit loan counseling session or complete the session online. A group exit counseling session is offered mid-April each year. For information regarding the time, date and place refer to the Academic Calendar for Important Dates and Deadlines. Otherwise students are required to complete the exit counseling session online.
For students who have borrowed Perkins Loans, the session is done at https://borrower.ecsi.net.
For students who have borrowed Federal Direct and/or Stafford Loans, online exit counseling is done at www.studentloans.gov (you will need your FAFSA PIN number to sign in).
If you have borrowed both types (Perkins and Direct/Stafford), you must complete both sessions. For both sessions you will need to have on hand next of kin contact, two references including full address and telephone, your driver’s license, and future employer information if known.
