Student Loan Counseling

Entrance & Exit Interviews

Students who borrow under the Federal Direct Loan Program (DL) are required to complete loan entrance counseling before receiving loan proceeds from their first loan and loan exit counseling before graduating or otherwise leaving school.  Only complete one of the following counseling sessions, as appropriate, if you have been instructed by the CSM Financial Assistance Department to do so.


If you recently applied for and have been approved by the CSM Financial Assistance Department for your first Federal Direct Loan, click here to complete Loan Entrance Counseling and your Master Promissory Note.



If you are about to graduate or otherwise leave CSM and have borrowed Federal Stafford Loan funds prior to July 1, 2010 or Federal Direct Loan funds on or after the Fall 2010 semester, click here for "Federal Direct Loan Exit Counseling."
