Student Loans

Attention Student Borrowers!

Students who borrow under the Federal Stafford Loan Program are required to complete online entrance counseling before receiving loan proceeds from their first Stafford loan.

In addition, student borrowers are required to complete exit counseling shortly before graduating or otherwise leaving school. These online sessions explain the basic facts about subsidized and unsubsidized loans along with the student's rights and responsibilities as a borrower. This information will help you understand how to manage your student loan and the commitment that comes with the acceptance of a student loan.

You may start your entrance or exit loan counseling session by clicking on the appropriate link below. If you have any questions as you complete the counseling requirements, you may contact the financial aid office any time.

Attention: If you are completing Exit Counseling, you must first login to and then select "Complete Counseling". You will then find the link for Exit Counseling.
