Student Loan Counseling

< Back to Money Minute

Student Loan debt has surpassed our nations credit card debt and is second only to mortgage debt.
Changes have been made to help students understand the financial obligations they commit to by using financial aid and life after graduation dealing with repayment. There are several types of required counseling…
Entrance Counseling:
Required when requesting your first Direct Subsidized
or Unsubsidized loan or your first Direct PLUS loan.
PLUS Counseling:
Required when you have been notified that you have adverse credit history and have obtained an endorser or provided sufficient documentation stating that there were extenuating circumstances that explain the adverse information.
Exit Counseling:
Required when you graduate, leave school, or drop below a half-time enrollment.
The counseling is meant to prepare you for loan repayment.
There is also additional counseling that is not required but beneficial in helping you understand your loans and manage your finances…
Financial Awareness Counseling:
