Entrance and Exit Counseling for Direct Loans


First time borrowers of a Federal Stafford or Unsubsidized loan are required to complete a one-time entrance counseling session to learn about their rights and responsibilities as a borrower. The Entrance Interview Requirement needs to be satisfied on-line.


A student who will be graduating and has borrowed Direct loans while at Canton is required by the Federal government to complete Exit counseling. The Exit Interview is also required for student borrowers who will not be returning to the college after a term of attendance. You may complete the Exit Interview On-line or attend an Exit session on campus as scheduled.

Because of the sensitive nature of the information you must provide you need to have your student pin number in order to access this site and complete the Exit Interview.

When you go to the link for Exit Interview you will be asked if you have a PIN. If you do not, instructions follow on obtaining one.
