Entrance Counseling & Exit Counseling
If this is your first loan, you must undertake Entrance Counseling. Your loan will not be originated unless you have done so. Even if you have obtained loans in the past, it is still advisable that you undertake Entrance Counseling. Avoiding Entrance Counseling on-line could result in your loan not being disbursed as it is an in-built feature of the relevant U.S. Department of Education's database. Entrance Counseling is therefore strongly advised for all students. Not only is it beneficial in the long term but it could avoid delays to your disbursements.
All students must undertake Exit Counseling before the completion of their course.
N.B. Please send confirmation that you have undertaken Exit Counseling to firstname.lastname@example.org at the appropriate time.
Please note that if you are on a 3-year programme and thus have to take out a loan for each of the 3 academic years, you only have to undertake the Entrance Counseling once, before you start the course, and the Exit Counseling once, towards the end of your course.
