Exit Counseling

If you borrowed a Federal Stafford Direct loan while attending Edgecombe Community College, it is mandatory that you complete Exit Counseling. This is a federal requirement for all Federal Stafford Loan recipients. Exit counseling requirements were created to ensure that you understand your rights and responsibilities as a borrower. During the counseling, you will learn how to make payments of your loans easier and how to get help and protect your credit rating if you have problems.

You can complete your Stafford Exit Counseling online at studentloans.gov. Your federal FSA ID and password (the FSA PIN replacement, effective 5/10/2015) is required to complete your exit counseling. If you have forgotten or have not set up your FSA ID username and password, please visit the FSA ID website.
