Entrance Counseling           

By federal law, all first-time loan borrowers must be provided with entrance counseling explaining student’s rights and responsibilities for acceptance of the loans.  Students awarded the Federal Direct Unsubsidized or Graduste PLUS student loans are provided counseling sessions which address general debt management information.

In the School of Medicine, students are required to complete an Online Direct Loan Entrance Interview counseling session at  and attend an orientation where they are given an introductory presentation and resource materials to help them to develop a livable budget and debt management plan.   

In addition, students are expected to complete the AAMC MedLoans Organizer & Calculator and Create a SALT Money Account to gain an understanding of debt management and financial literacy.
