The federal government requires all colleges and universities to offer Entrance and Exit Counseling for federal student loan recipients. Students only have to complete each of these once (for each federal loan type) while in attendance at Southwestern.

Students must complete entrance and exit counseling sessions for each of the various loan types they will receive.*

Types of Entrance and Exit Counseling Available:

  • Perkins Entrance Counseling
  • Stafford and Grad PLUS Entrance Counseling

  • Stafford Exit Counseling
  • Perkins Exit Counseling
  • Grad PLUS Exit Counseling
  • Stafford and Grad PLUS Exit Counseling


Please note: If you are uncertain as to which loans you will be receiving, it is in your best interest to complete the counseling sessions for Stafford, Grad PLUS AND Federal Perkins loans.
