Follow these simple instructions to complete the FAFSA.
- Complete the FAFSA by visiting www.studentaid.gov. You will create your personal credentials and complete the application on this page.

Each new student loan recipient will be required to complete entrance counseling before a loan application is processed and attend an exit interview when graduating or terminating from school. Students may access information about Exit Counseling. This provides access to the Exit Counseling Guide as well as the Borrower’s Information Form and the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Form which must be completed in the exit interview process. Students who have a pin number have the option of using the online Exit Counseling. This will satisfy all requirements for exit counseling and give the borrower up to date information on their student loan balances. This is the quickest and easiest way to satisfy the exit counseling requirement.
