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 insure that you understand this responsibility and the obligation you are assuming federal regulations require that you complete a loan counseling session prior to obtaining a Federal Direct Stafford or a Federal Direct Graduate Plus loan. University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry offers online entrance counseling through the Department of Education website studentloans.gov. (YOU MUST SELECT UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC CODE # G01329) as your school for Entrance Counseling.
Once you have passed the Entrance Counseling Quiz, the system will then prompt you to log in using either your FSA ID or your student information. The system will then display your Direct Stafford and Direct Graduate Plus Loan Rights and Responsibilities as a borrower. You should print this page for your records.
A confirmation email that you have successfully completed this requirement will be sent to the Financial Aid Office at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry upon the conclusion of the session. If you have any questions please contact the Financial Aid Office at 415.749.3341.
