Mapping Your Future: Online Counseling
Step 1 Contact Us

Welcome to Direct Loan Exit Counseling!

Before you withdraw, graduate, or drop below half-time attendance (regardless if you plan to transfer to another school), regulations require that you complete an exit counseling session for your Federal Stafford Loan (subsidized or unsubsidized) and Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans. The counseling session provides information about how to manage your student loans after college.

  • From the menu below, select the location of your school and then select your school. Your school must elect to participate in this counseling session. If they aren't on the list below, do NOT select another school. Instead, talk to your school about alternative methods for fulfilling your loan counseling obligation.
  • Read any information from your school and the session instructions.
  • Read the content and answer the questions.
  • Fill out the student information form. Use the comment box for any comments or questions you have for your school.
  • Print the confirmation page that appears after you fill out the student information form or note your confirmation number for your records.

The student loan calculator in this session will help you calculate your estimated monthly payment. If you aren`t sure how much you`ve borrowed, you have several options:

  • If you were issued a PIN when you completed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), you can determine the amount you borrowed from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) at
  • Ask your school for the amount you borrowed or the average student loan indebtedness of borrowers at the school or in your program of study at the school. Your school may have included this information on the next page.
