Federal Student Loan Exit Counseling

The staff of Student Financial Services would like to offer our most sincere congratulations on your impending graduation!! Did you receive a Federal Direct (Stafford) Loan and/or a Federal Perkins Loan? If so, you are required to complete exit counseling for each loan type prior to graduation.

Federal Direct (Stafford) Subsidized & Unsubsidized Loans

It is a federal requirement that students go through Exit Loan Counseling at such time as they are ready to graduate, withdraw, or drop below half-time enrollment. This requirement can be fulfilled by going to studentaid.gov, and completing the Exit Counseling. You will be provided with valuable information about loan repayment as well as your rights and responsibilities as a borrower in the Federal Direct Loan program. Questions? Contact Student Financial Services at 507-389-1866.

Federal Perkins Loan

If you borrowed a Federal Perkins student loan while attending MSU, Mankato, please contact the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Perkins Student Laon Service Center at 651-201-1500 to complete separate exit counseling for this loan program.
