Exit Loan Counseling

Exit Loan Counseling is a federally required for any student loan borrower who withdraws from the college, graduates, or drops below half-time. The purpose of exit counseling is to ensure you understand your student loan obligations and are prepared for repayment.

Exit Counseling Instructions
  • Log in to studentaid.gov using your FSA ID
  • Under 'Loan Repayment' tab select 'Loan Exit Counseling'
  • Click 'Start'
  • Complete and submit the counseling session. 

Upon completion, Baker College will receive the results electronically and the requirements will be satisfied.

Who Should Complete this? How Long Will It Take? What Do I Need?
