If you are a senior or a graduate student graduating this semester, and have borrowed from one of the various student loan programs, it is important to remember that your student loans are your responsibility and must be carefully managed. Federal Regulations require you to participate in an online Loan Exit Counseling to assist you with your student loan debt.
In order to fulfill the online Loan Exit Counseling requirement, you will need a Department of Education Personal Identification Number (PIN). Your PIN will also allow you to access various websites including; the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) and Direct Loan Consolidation. If you do not know or do not remember your PIN, you can request a duplicate one.
You must first review the Exit Counseling information for your loans, and then you will be directed to take a quiz. Your quiz results will be electronically sent to the Financial Aid office. Your Loan Exit Counseling requirement is not considered complete until you have completed and passed the quiz.
To access the online Loan Exit Counseling and/or obtain a PIN, please visit www.studentloans.gov/.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Financial Aid office at 978-934-4220.
