Stafford Loan Entrance Interview

All students receiving Federal Stafford Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans for the first time must complete an online entrance interview. In order to make this process go as smoothly as possible, we created this page to refer you to the website where you will complete your online interview. Please note that failure to complete this online interview will result in the canceling of your student loan.

Federal law requires when you borrow through the Federal Stafford Loan program for the first time, you must complete an entrance interview. In addition, when you graduate, withdraw, or enroll less than half-time, you must complete an exit interview. The entrance counseling sessions can be done on-line at

Please note: The Stafford Loan Entrance Interview must be completed prior to your arrival on campus in August. If you have any questions, please call the Office of Financial Aid at 215.951.2940.
