Financial Aid Office - Entrance and Exit Counseling

Federal law requires that all recipients of any Federal Direct Loans receive loan entrance counseling before initial loan proceeds can be disbursed. Entering students and continuing students who are first-time borrowers and receive Federal Stafford and/or Federal Perkins loans must complete the mandatory entrance counseling session. Information on the student borrower’s rights and responsibilities will be provided and explained.

Prior to graduation, less than half-time enrollment status and withdrawal from Thurgood Marshall School of Law, all students who borrowed from the Federal Direct Loan program must attend exit counseling. Information will be given to you regarding estimated monthly payments, repayment options, loan consolidation, deferment and forbearance options, and other rights and responsibilities. Students will be contacted by the Office of Financial Aid with details regarding exit counseling sessions.
