Exit Counseling

If you have received a student loan to help finance your education at Spokane Community College, the federal financial aid regulations require us to provide you with exit counseling information about your loan. Exit counseling should be completed prior to your leaving SCC.

Exit counseling is located at the website. Once you enter the site, click on "Exit Counseling" under the "Tools and Resources" section. This takes you directly to the NSLDS website.

You will need to use your federal Dept. of Education PIN to complete the exit counseling. If you have forgotten your PIN, you can request a duplicate at

Exit counseling will provide you with information regarding:

  • Total Direct Loans you have borrowed and your payment schedule
  • Payment options – estimated monthly payments, payment days
  • Transferring to another school
  • Other student loans you have borrowed
  • Loan consolidation, deferment, and cancellation
  • Debt management and the consequences of defaulting
  • The address and telephone number of your Direct Loan Servicing Center
  • Other agencies that may help you as a loan borrower

You must successfully pass the quiz in order to be given credit for completing the exit interview. We will receive a list of those borrowers who successfully complete their exit interviews.
