Funding your education through federal loans is a major investment in your future!

To ensure that you understand the responsibilities of borrowing a Direct Loan, the Department of Education requires all First Time Borrowers to participate in Entrance Counseling. As a part of Entrance Counseling, you will receive information regarding Direct Loans, budgeting your expenses, repayment options and your rights and responsibilities as a borrower.

Kent State University is allowing you to use the World Wide Web as a means to complete the Department of Education’s requirements. Once you have reviewed the information, you must print a copy of the Rights & Responsibilities checklist that is at the end of the session. To complete your Entrance Loan Counseling, go to studentloans.gov

Review and complete the information on the checklist and submit it to:
