Current Students

As a student borrower you are legally required to complete Exit Counseling if you have taken one of the following actions and were a recipient of Title IV financial aid:

  • Graduated or will be graduating from your program of study
  • Withdrawn
  • Ceased attending
  • Were enrolled for less than half time (6 credits Undergraduate / 3 credits Graduate)

The purpose for this process is to help you (the student borrower) understand your rights and responsibilities while providing information to help you manage your loans. You must complete the Exit Counseling even if you plan to register for the upcoming semester. Please make sure you read all directions prior to logging in (you must login using your FAFSA Pin). Once you are in the system, follow all steps until you have finished. Directions for accessing the counseling are listed below:

  1. Logon to studentloans.gov 
  2. Select: Counseling Demo
  3. Select: Exit Counseling Option

Lastly, we recommend that you contact your servicer to find out about repayment options which may be available to you. If you are unsure of who services your loans, you can logon to NSLDS, select Financial Aid Review to get the correct information. Please allow at least 5 business days for your DSU records to reflect that you have completed this process.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have received a Federal Perkins or Nursing Loan, you will receive an exit packet from Campus Partners at a later date. 

Failure to complete the counseling could result in a hold being placed on your student records.

As the  spring semester progresses, it is time to start thinking about the next academic year. The Office of Financial Aid has posted information below to assist you with your financial aid planning. 

Please e-mail us at faid [at] desu.edu if you have any questions.  You can visit the office Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m; the office is open until 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. There is no appointment necessary.  

Early Refund Discontinued

Delaware State University will no longer participate in the early refund process. 

Because refunds will not be issued prior to the start of the semester, students who choose off-campus housing must be financially responsible for their deposit and lease obligations as the academic year begins. If you will not be financially prepared, DSU offers a variety of opportunities for on-campus housing that can meet your needs. For upperclassmen, this includes the DSU Living and Learning Commons. Students can apply for on-campus housing beginning April 15 through a link that will be sent to your DSU email account.

If you have any questions about the refund process, you may contact the Office of Financial Aid at 302.857.6250 or faid [at] desu.edu.
