Graduating Students

Exit counseling

Federal regulations require that students who are graduating, withdrawn, inactive, or are no longer enrolled at least halftime must complete loan exit counseling for any Federal Direct, Perkins, Nursing or University loans received at the University of Rochester. Please review FAOnline to determine the types of loans you have borrowed throughout your attendance at the University of Rochester. To review previous award year information, simply change the Award Year at the top of your account and review the Award tabs found in each year you’ve been enrolled at Rochester.
