Exit Interview

Why do I have to complete an Exit Interview?

You are required by Federal regulations to complete an Exit Interview with Colorado State University when you graduate, withdraw, or drop below half-time enrollment status. If you have additional federal loans you will need to complete the online exit counseling for those loans as well.

What is an Exit Interview?

An Exit Interview is an informational session about the repayment of your Federal Perkins or Health Porfessions Student Loan. At this session you will receive a Truth-in-Lending Statement and an Exit Questionnaire to complete and sign, along with copies for your files. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about your Perkins and/or Health Porfessions Student Loan, your eligibility for deferment or cancellation benefits, and your obligation to pay back your loan now that you are no longer enrolled at Colorado State University or another institution of higher education.
