All federal Direct loan borrowers are required to complete an entrance counseling requirement. We recommend that you complete this requirement online. The entrance counseling session provides you with information about your rights and responsibilities as a borrower. After reading the information, you will be quizzed on your knowledge.
The Orion Institute Financial Aid Office will be notified when you have completed your online entrance counseling. You will not receive any disbursements of your federal Direct loan until you have completed your entrance counseling requirement.
Go to the Direct Loan website at http://StudentLoans.gov/.
Right upper corner: Click “Green” Log In Button
Log in with your FSA Username and Password.
Click on “Complete Entrance Counseling.” Follow the prompts until you reach the School and Loan Information screen.
For School State, select OHIO.
For School Name, select THE ORION INSTITUTE.
Work through the entrance counseling information, responding to the quiz questions along the way. When you have finished, the Financial Aid Office at The Orion Institute will be notified.
