Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal, MO
Welcome to Online Student Loan Entrance Counseling for Federal Stafford Loans. All students borrowing for the first time to attend HLG are required to complete entrance counseling before receipt of their first loan. Transfer students with prior Stafford loan debt must also complete this requirement if they have never borrowed to attend HLG.
Before taking out a student loan, carefully consider the effect of the debt on your future career and only borrow what is needed. The average debt for graduates of 2009 was $15,794 with an estimated monthly payment for 10 years of $181.76 at 6.8% interest.
Print the confirmation page to include with your loan records. Once Entrance Counseling is completed you will not be required to do so again at HLG. However, you will need to complete an Exit Counseling session when you graduate, withdraw, or cease to attend school on at least a half time basis. Half-time is when a student is enrolled for 6 credit hours. When that time comes, you may complete your Exit Counseling using this website.
Should you decide to withdraw from HLG please contact the Registrar's office to start the process as this may effect your Financial Aid package.
If at any time during this process you have questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone at (573) 629-3279 during normal working hours (8:00 am to 5:00 pm Central Time) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best wishes for a positive entrance loan counseling session and a productive upcoming semester.
