Stafford Loan Counseling

The federal government requires that students complete a entrance counseling session prior to obtaining a Federal Stafford Loan.

Oglethorpe is happy to offer the option to complete these sessions online through the Federal Direct Stafford Loan site. You will need about 25 minutes to complete the session.

Stafford Loan Entrance Counseling

Created with the help of students and financial aid professionals, Online Student Loan Counseling enables students to complete the counseling requirement anytime, anywhere. The purpose of the session is to help you understand your rights and obligations as a student loan borrower. This student loan counseling session will prepare you for proper management of your student loan, helping you make the most of your higher education. True/false questions are given throughout the counseling session, and you must provide correct answers before being allowed to proceed. Upon completion of the student loan counseling session, you will complete an online form. This form is then sent to Oglethorpe via e-mail, notifying the financial aid office that you have met the loan counseling requirement.

Stafford Loan Exit Counseling

All Stafford Loan borrowers are required to complete Exit Counseling upon graduation or withdrawal from the University. Information regarding in-person counseling sessions is sent to all students. We also offer student the option of Exit Counseling online through the Federal Direct Stafford website.
