Entrance Counseling for Federal Loan Borrowers

Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS Loan Borrowers

First time Federal Direct Student Loan borrowers at KUMC must complete the online Loan Entrance Counseling and Quiz before loan funds can be disbursed. Completion of the Loan Entrance Counseling and Quiz is a federal requirement that discusses your rights and responsibilities as a Federal Direct Student Loan borrower. Please complete the online entrance counseling at We encourage you to print the confirmation page for your records.

Important Information for Borrowers:

Once you have completed the online entrance counseling and quiz on-line, we will receive an automated confirmation.  If you have any questions about this process, please contact our office by emailing or calling (913) 588-5170.

Enrollment information can be found here. If your enrollment status drops to less than half-time, you no longer qualify for in-school deferment of your loan payments and you either begin your grace period or enter repayment. During your grace period you are not required to make payments, although unsubsidized interest will continue to accrue.

If you withdraw from the University prior to the completion of your program it is important that you contact the following offices: Student Financial Aid, Registrar, and your program advisor. This is to ensure that the school can provide you with the appropriate exit counseling, including repayment and loan consolidation options.

If you have questions regarding your rights and responsibilities or the terms and conditions of the loan please contact Student Financial Aid at 913-588-5170.
