Federal Direct Stafford Loan Entrance Counseling
Entrance counseling provides basic information to new student borrowers about the terms and conditions of the loans they have been awarded, as well as the rights and responsibilities of a student loan borrower.
Every student who has been awarded and accepted a Federal Direct Stafford Loan has a responsibility to receive entrance counseling the first time they are awarded a student loan at SIUC.
On-line entrance counseling is available at any time on the federal Student Loans web site. Students must have their federal PIN available to do entrance loan counseling.
