Exit Counseling Procedures
Exit Counseling is required for all students that have graduated, withdrawn, or at some point enrolled in less than 6 credit hours (half-time). Exit Counseling provides information to students on your rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower. You will also learn useful tips to help you manage your loans and prevent loan delinquency or loan default. You can complete your Exit Counseling session at the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
Additional resources are available to help you with your student loan questions:
If you are planning to come back to PNC, or attend another university, stop in the Financial Aid Office at PNC to complete an In School Deferment form. You cannot complete this form until you are registered for the upcoming term. This form alerts your lenders that you are now back in school at an “AT LEAST HALF-TIME STATUS” (6 credit hours or above). This will take you out of repayment until you graduate, withdraw, or stop attending at an at least half-time status.
Once you have completed the Exit Counseling process, PNC will be notified electronically. You are not required to notify PNC.
