Exit Counseling for Student Borrowers


Federal financial aid regulations require WSCC to provide Exit Loan Counseling to loan borrowers who are either graduating, leaving college or drop below half-time enrollment (less than 6 credits).  The purpose of exit loan counseling is to provide you with important information regarding loan repayment options, your rights, and responsibilities.


Exit Loan Counseling may be completed online or you may choose to schedule an appointment to meet with the Financial Aid Director. If you have any questions as you complete the Exit Counseling requirements, you may contact the financial aid office at 231-843-5518.  You may also choose to use the complete guide to Exit Counseling at http://www.direct.ed.gov/pubs/exitcounselguide.pdf, published by the U.S. Department of Education.


For more information about your student loans or to begin your Exit Counseling, you may visit www.nslds.ed.gov.  You will need your social security number and PIN for your FAFSA to log in.  You can find the name(s) and contact information of your lender(s), your balance information and other general information about paying back your student loans.
