Entrance and Exit Loan Counseling

First time Federal Direct Loan borrowers at AUM must complete loan entrance counseling. This important information explains the mandatory process borrowers must undergo along with their responsibilities prior to accepting a federal loan.  The primary reason for these efforts is to ensure that students have lower rates of delinquency in repaying their loans along with lower rates of defaulting on the loans.

The entire process is virtual and completed in 20-30 mins.

Exit counseling provides important information to prepare you to repay your federal student loan(s).

If you have received a subsidized, unsubsidized or PLUS loan under the Direct Loan Program or the FFEL Program, you must complete exit counseling each time you:

  • Drop below half-time enrollment
  • Graduate
  • Leave school

The entire process is virtual and completed in 20-30 minutes.

Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Violations

In accordance with U.S.Department of Education regulations, if a student is convicted of a drug offense after receiving Federal financial aid money, he or she must notify their respective Financial Aid Office immediately. Further, that student will become ineligible for further federal financial aid and will also be required to pay back any and all aid received after the conviction.  Please see the current published information regarding this important regulation.
