University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND
Welcome to the University of North Dakota Perkins exit counseling session!
Exit counseling is required when a student drops below half-time attendance or graduates from an institution where the student borrowed a Federal student loan, regardless if the student plans to return to the same school or transfer to another higher education institution.
You can access basic loan information with your federal PIN number through the NSLDS web site at www.nslds.ed.gov. For Perkins Loan repayment questions call the Student Loan Service Center at 1-800-698-7397.
Below is information regarding two loan forgiveness programs for North Dakota residents:
The Technology Occupations Student Loan Program will reduce student loan indebtedness by up to $1,000 per year up to a maximum of three years for those who have graduated in a technology-related field, completed an internship with a business located in North Dakota, and been employed in a technology occupation in North Dakota for one year.
