Exit Loan Counseling

If you have borrowed a Federal Direct Loan while attending Hawkeye, you will need to complete an Exit Loan Counseling session:

  • For each certificate or diploma you earn.
  • Before you graduate.
  • If you withdraw from Hawkeye.
  • If you are enrolled in less than six credit hours.

This is mandatory even if you plan to continue your education at Hawkeye or at another college or university.

Please allow 3–4 business days for processing.

You will not be able to receive an official copy of your Hawkeye transcript or your diploma until you complete the Exit Loan Counseling.

Graduating Students

Graduating students must attend an in person Exit Loan Counseling Group Session. Pre-registration is required.

Non-Graduating Students

Check your My Hawkeye notifications for instructions on how to complete your Exit Loan Counseling requirement.

Non-graduating students can complete the Exit Loan Counseling online at studentloans.gov. If you are graduating and complete the online portion of the Exit Counseling, you will still be required to attend an in-person session.
