« Go back to Student & Parent Loans

Loan Exit Counseling is required for all undergraduate students who have completed 108 credits and borrowed a Federal Direct Loan, all graduate students who have completed 36 credits and borrowed a Federal Direct Loan, and all law students who have completed 74 credits and borrowed a Federal Direct Loan. You must complete your Loan Exit Counseling if you are being requested to do so on your My ASU To Do list, regardless if you are graduating.

Each time you completely withdraw from a term or drop below half time enrollment in a term, you are required to complete Loan Exit Counseling. If you previously completed Exit Counseling on iGrad and are required to take again, you must click on Retake Course from the Exit Counseling course page and indicate that your situation has changed in order to complete the new task

Loan Exit Counseling provides you with deferment, forbearance and consolidation information if you decide to return to school or you are unable to make your payments for any reason. Explanations of the different repayment programs, repayment calculators, important terminology and several other valuable resources are also part of the process.
