Before you graduate, or if you drop below half time attendance, federal regulation requires that you complete an exit counseling session. You are provided information on your obligation to repay your Federal loans, as well as on conditions for deferment, forbearance, and cancellation. These sessions are also an opportunity for you to become more knowledgeable about loan management after college.
If you are withdrawing, you should contact the Office of Financial Aid so we can provide you with information on the loans that you have borrowed while in attendance at Fisher College.
All students who have borrowed a federal student loan are required to complete an exit interview. In person exit interviews with a member of the financial aid office are encouraged. At each of the sessions we meet with you to discuss your rights and responsibilities as a student borrower entering into repayment. Additionally, we are available to answer any questions that you have regarding repayment options and other debt management concerns. If you are unable to attend an in person session you can complete an on-line exit interview at www.nslds.ed.gov and click on Exit Counseling.
Sessions last approximately a half hour. Please make sure that you bring the following information with you in order to complete the required paperwork:
- Your Social Security Number
- Your Driver's License Number
- Names, addresses, telephone numbers for one of your parents (if applicable)
- Names, addresses, telephone numbers for two references residing at different addresses
- Name, address, and telephone number for your expected employer (if known)
NOTE: Providing names and information for your parents, spouse, next of kin and references does not obligate them to assist with repayment of your student loan. Regulation requires you provide this data so your loan holder can locate you in the future; for example, if they have an invalid address or phone number.
At the end of the session you complete and sign the required exit interviews form(s).
