Exit Counseling

If you borrowed funds from the Federal Direct Loan program and are no longer attending Grand Valley State University at least half-time you are required to complete online exit counseling. Your loans will go into repayment six months from the date you were last enrolled half-time. If you re-enroll at least half-time before the end of your six month grace period, you will not go into repayment but are still required to complete exit counseling.
