First time borrowers of the Federal Direct Student Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans are required to complete loan entrance counseling. Loan entrance counseling should take you 30-45 minutes to complete.
Exit counseling is required when you are no longer enrolled at least 1/2 time (6 credits for undergraduate students; 5 credits for graduate students). For most students, you will complete exit counseling when you graduate. After you have submitted the 'Exit Counseling' the results can take up to two weeks before the University of Portland is notified.
