Parents cannot complete this step for their student!
All first-time borrowers are required to complete a loan entrance counseling session prior to receiving loan funds.
The Federal Government requires you to participate in loan entrance counseling prior to receiving a:
- Federal Direct Loan
- Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan
- Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan
- Federal TEACH Grant
You can complete the Entrance Counseling for all other types of loans via the Department of Education’s Student Loans website.
You will be required to sign in with your FAFSA ID.
Select “Complete Entrance Counseling”.
It should take about 35 to 45 minutes.
Once you have successfully completed the entrance counseling requirement, you will be required to take a test. After you pass the test, a confirmation will be sent to the email address you provided during registration.
