This Entrance Counseling session will take place in Las Cruces at the East Mesa Auditorium. Building and room number subject to change based on how many students register!
All students borrowing for the first-time at DACC/NMSU are required to complete a free loan entrance counseling session prior to receiving Stafford loan funds.
Continuing your education is a major investment in your future. If you decide to make loans a part of this investment, managing the debt you incur is a major responsibility. To ensure that you understand this responsibility and the obligation you are assuming, the Federal Government requires you to participate in loan entrance counseling prior to receiving a Federal Direct Loan.
During the session, you will learn how the loan process works, tips and pointers on how to manage your educational expenses, other methods to consider to help pay for your education, and your rights and responsiblities as a borrower.
Upon successful completion of the Entrance Counseling session, borrowers will still be required to complete a MPN (Master Promissory Note).
