Entrance Counseling

Entrance Counseling is a federal requirement for all Federal Direct Loan recipients. The funds for your loan will not be disbursed until you have completed the counseling.

Entrance Counseling provides you with information about:

  • Your rights and responsibilities as a borrower
  • Interest rates, expenses, repayment plans, and other important details about borrowing
  • Who to contact with questions
