Exit Counseling


All students that have borrowed from any of the loan programs listed below while a student at Hamilton College are required by federal law to attend a financial aid exit counseling session.

Federal Loan: Direct Loan (Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized) and/or Perkins

Institutional Loan: Burgess, Drown, Marquardt, Sanson and/or Sherman

In addition to completing the necessary online counseling, you will also be given helpful information about managing your student loans after college.

Exit sessions will be held as follows:
Where: Kirner-Johnson (KJ), Room #202  
When: Monday, April 3
Friday, April 7
9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
9 a.m.- noon
What to Bring:
  • Your FSA ID (a username and password) has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to login to U.S. Department of Education websites. If you have not created your FSA ID, you must create one prior to the Loan Exit Counseling Session. Remember to link your federal PIN to your FSA ID.
  • Your driver's license number (if you have one).
  • You will be required to submit the name, address, and telephone number of three references that will know your whereabouts for at least three years after graduation. One of these references must be a next of kin (blood relative). All three references (including the next of kin) must be individuals with a United States address different than your after graduation address. In addition, each reference must reside at a different United States address.
  • Email address (not your Hamilton email) along with your address and telephone number after graduation.

You need an appointment to attend one of these sessions.

A transcript hold will be placed on your account if you do not complete the required Exit Counseling session.
