  • Exit loan counseling

    Exit Loan Counseling must be completed each time that a student drops below half-time, leaves school or graduates.

    Important information before you begin:

    1-  If you have not already done so, when you arrive at the website, it will ask you to establish an FSA ID, comprised of a user-selected username and password. If you have not created this username and password, you will be instructed to create the FSA ID and will be required to wait several days until your identity is verified through the Social Security Administration before you can proceed.

    2-  The Exit Counseling Session will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and you must complete the entire session in one sitting. If you exit before completing the session, you will be required to start over from the beginning.

    3-  As part of the session, you will need to supply contact information for your next of kin (usually your parents), two references who live at a different address than your next of kin (all three references must live at a different address).

    Proceed to Exit Loan Counseling to complete this federal requirement.

    The average total indebtedness of UW-La Crosse students who have borrowed federal loans during their undergraduate career is $25,932 for 2013-14.
