Entrance counseling is required for ALL first-time borrowers. This must be completed before loan proceeds will be disbursed. You can complete entrance counseling on the web by clicking on the Department of Education web site at http://studentloans.gov and electronically submitting the information.
To access this site it will require your FSA ID which is the same ID used in filing your FAFSA. If you do not have an FSA ID you may apply for one directly on the site.
After carefully reading each section of the entrance counseling web-site, you should have a clear understanding of rights and responsibilities, loan interest and repayment information. If at any time during your review of the entrance counseling information you have a question, simply contact us by e-mail or call our office at 217-581-6405 and one of our staff members will respond to your question as quickly as possible.
