Exit Counseling

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 Exit Counseling. In person Exit Counseling with a member of the financial aid office is encouraged. During your session we will discuss with you 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. Students must complete on-line Exit Counseling at and log in with their FSA ID and Password.

Exit Counseling takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please make sure that you have the following information order to complete the :

  • 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 will need to complete and submit your Exit Counseling.
