Entrance and Exit Interviews

Required For Federal Loans

All students whose financial aid packages include federal loans (the Federal Direct Subsidized, Federal Direct Unsubsidized, Federal GradPLUS or the Federal Perkins) are required to complete:

  • an Entrance Interview before the disbursement of their loans, and
  • an Exit Interview prior to leaving the University.

Your school may require you to attend these interviews in person. Please check additional requirements with your School Financial Aid Office.

 

The Entrance Interview...

  • explains the rights and responsibilities of federal loan borrowers
  • must be completed before any federal loan funds are disbursed to your student account via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
  • can be completed online through Student Services Online (SSOL)


The Exit Interview...

  • explains the rights and responsibilities of federal loan borrowers
  • is required when a student:
    • graduates,
    • drops below part-time status (6 credits at most schools),
    • takes a leave of absence, or
    • withdraws from the University
  • can be completed online through Student Services Online (SSOL)

Your Exit Interview will not be considered complete until you have gone through the entire interview and entered and confirmed your Name and Social Security Number or PIN. Once you have completed Exit Counseling online, you will receive a confirmation email, which you need for your records.

Please note: Students who do not complete an exit interview may have their diploma and transcripts placed on hold.
