Exit Loan Counseling

Federal regulations mandate that all student loan borrowers complete exit loan counseling anytime they drop below half-time status or when they file for graduation.  This can mean a borrower may be required to complete exit loan counseling multiple times throughout their academic career.  Completion of exit loan counseling in no way effects a borrower’s ability to get future financial aid nor does it put your loans into repayment.  Your loans will only enter repayment if you are no longer enrolled at least half-time* (full-time for HPSL loans) at an eligible institution.

Exit loan counseling is an opportunity for the borrower to review their rights and responsibilities regarding their student loan(s) as well as provide their lender(s) with updated contact and reference information.  The types of loans borrowed while at UC Davis will determine the exit requirement(s) a borrower may have.  Please refer to the chart below to determine which exit requirement(s) you may need to complete.
