Direct Loan Exit Counseling for Spring 2018

Exit counseling is required when you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment. At FIT you must be enrolled in at least 6 credits in your degree program to be considered half-time for Direct Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, and Graduate PLUS Loans.

If you were unable to attend one of our on-campus Exit Counseling sessions during this Spring 2018 semester, you may still contact our loan team at FITLoans@fitnyc.edu to set up an exit counseling session.

You may also complete your exit counseling online at StudentLoans.gov. If you have any questions regarding your loans, you may contact our loan team at FITLoans@fitnyc.edu.
