Direct Loan Exit Counseling

University of Texas at Tyler in Tyler, TX

Welcome Patriots!

 

You have reached the Stafford Exit Counseling site for the University of Texas at Tyler.  Exit Counseling is necessary to make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities as a Stafford Loan borrower and also to give you information on some of your potential repayment options. 

 

Exit Counseling is required for any student who has borrowed Federal loan funds who is dropping below half-time (6 hours during the Fall or Spring semesters) and any student who graduates or completely withdraws during any semester, including Summer.  It is important that you contact both the Registrar’s Office and Financial Aid Office if you withdraw from classes even if you withdraw by fax rather than in person.

 

As of 2006 the Average Indebtedness for borrowers of Federal Stafford Loans leaving the University of Texas at Tyler was $13,750.  You will have an opportunity to view potential monthly payments for this debt level when you reach the Debt/Salary Wizard portion of the counseling session.

You will need your Social Security number and PIN number from the Department of Education to view your complete loan history.

Direct Loan Exit Counseling Session Instructions

Before You Start

  • Ensure you meet the browser and system requirements:
    • You must use at least Internet Explorer 7.0 or the newest version of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Get a browser now.
    • You can use any Internet service provider (ISP) to connect to the Internet; however, you should access this counseling session using one of the browsers above after you've connected. Do NOT use the ISP's browser, such as AOL or MSN--you won't be able to complete the student form at the end of the session!
    • You must enable JavaScript in your browser.
    • If you encounter that the question numbers are not displaying correctly when you answer a question incorrectly, ensure that Java is enabled on your browser and try another browser (such as Firefox or Chrome), if the issue persists.

  • PARENTS: Please don't complete the counseling session on behalf of your son or daughter, as this federal requirement helps the student understand the rights and responsibilities of borrowing a student loan.

  • You will need about 25 minutes to complete this counseling session.

  • You will need the following information:
    • Your Social Security number
    • Your driver's license number
    • Name, address, telephone number, and employer for your next of kin
    • Names, addresses, telephone numbers, and employers for two references residing at different addresses

  • You might need the following information:
    • Name, address, telephone number, and employer for your parent, if applicable
    • Name, address, telephone number, and employer for your spouse, if applicable
    • NOTE: Providing names and information for your spouse, parent, next of kin, and references does not obligate them to assist with repayment of your loan. Regulations require you provide this data so your loan holder can locate you, if, in the future, they have an invalid address or phone number.

  • The student loan calculator in this session will help you calculate your estimated monthly payment. If you aren't sure how much you'll borrow, you can ask your school for the average student loan indebtedness of borrowers at the school or in your program of study at the school.

What to Do

  • 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.
