April is Financial Literacy Month!
Student loan borrowers make a significant financial investment in their future, and because of this, the U.S. Department of Education requires that students receive an “Exit Loan Counseling Session” before graduation.
Having said that, the Financial Literacy program (F.L.I.G.H.T.) is hosting a “Don’t Forget to Exit” counseling event on April 14-25, 2014. This event will be held at the One Stop Shop from 8:00 –5:00 pm. Students participating at the One Stop Shop will receive a door prize and refreshments.
All 2014 graduates’ must complete this requirement by April 15, 2014. Failure to complete by April 15th, will result in a hold being placed on your diploma. If you choose not to participate, you can complete your Exit Loan Counseling via this website https://studentloans.gov . If you complete exit loan counseling via website, please email your 885# and date of completion to Janice Maddox at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind holds will be placed on your diploma..
