All students who have helped finance their education through the Federal Stafford, Perkins, and Massachusetts NIL (No Interest Loan) programs are required to complete loan exit counseling. Graduating seniors who do not comply with this requirement will not be eligible to participate in Commencement and will not have degrees awarded until the exit interview has been completed (this is not just an FSU requirement; graduating students everywhere are required to complete the exit process).
Perkins Loans – Karen Barrows from Student Accounts will be sending the names of graduating students who have Perkins Loans to University Accounting Services (UAS). UAS will send out emails to the borrowers to go online to complete their EXIT INTERVIEW. The student will not be able to complete their exit interview until they receive this email. UAS will change the student’s status from enrolled to grace which starts the nine month grace period. Students are responsible to repay their loans and to notify the Office of the Registrar at the University AND UAS if they have a change in name, address, telephone number or email. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Karen Barrows at 508-626-4517 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
