You must complete entrance counseling before the first disbursement of your loan can be applied to your account. Entrance counseling helps you to understand your responsibilities and can be completed online at www.studentloans.gov.
(Select “Manage my Direct Loan” / “Sign in” / “Entrance Counseling”)
You must complete exit counseling after graduation. Exit counseling helps you know how much is due and when. Also, there may be options to consolidate many loans into one loan.
If you have any problems with this online counseling, a paper version can be mailed to you. Please contact our office at email@example.com or (615) 297-7545 to receive a paper copy. Completing an exit interview does not affect your loan grace period in any way. The grace period will begin once you are no longer enrolled for at least six hours. Thank you for attending Aquinas College and the best of luck in the future!
