Student Loan Exit Counseling

The U.S. Department of Education requires student loan borrowers to complete Loan Exit Counseling when leaving the College. Visit www.studentloans.gov and "Sign in" with your credentials and FAFSA PIN to begin your exit counseling. This session will provide useful information to help you understand your rights and responsibilities as federal loan borrowers, and prepares you to repay your loans. Most counseling sessions will last 15 - 30 minutes. Before beginning, gather all of your income, financial aid, and living expenses budget information.

Graduating students are also encouraged to schedule a personalized student loan repayment counseling session with our financial aid staff. We will prepare a repayment guide specifically for you containing information regarding the loans you have borrowed while at STLCOP. Call (800) 278-5267, extension 4001, or email financialaid@stlcop.edu to schedule your appointment.

Understanding Financial Aid 

Financial aid terms, acronyms, and phrases pop up without explanation and can be confusing when your new to the process. The Financial Aid Office is here to help. Not only do we work with families to develop individualized financial aid packages that provide the funds needed to help pay for college expenses, we are also happy to answer questions and help familiarize you with the financial aid process.

  • Many types of financial aid are determined by and processed through the U.S. Department of Education, a good resource is the government’s Federal Student Aid Glossary. Terms and phrases commonly used on government forms and financial aid applications are covered in detail.
  • Another good glossary is available from FastWeb, an online resource that matches students to relevant scholarship opportunities and provides information about other types of financial aid.
