A Great Exit Counseling Resource to Help Students Live Life Smart

March 22, 2019

As Spring approaches, the end of the school year is not far behind. With exit counseling on the horizon, we would like to remind you that Nelnet has a variety of resources available to assist you with this very important task.

The best resource you can provide students during exit counseling is our Live Life Smart Guide. The Live Life Smart Guide helps students become financially savvy and includes:

  • Budgeting worksheets
  • An infographic that breaks down the federal student loan process
  • Loan repayment information and tips
  • Default prevention resources
  • A glossary of student loan terms
  • Servicer contact information
  • A checklist of important topics to cover during exit counseling

Our website’s library contains numerous PDFs that provide valuable loan repayment information. This material focuses on default prevention, financial literacy, and loan repayment. Borrowers can learn about deferments, forbearances, delinquency, and the consequences of default.

If your school allows, your students may complete online exit counseling through the FSA website. Online exit counseling provides students with important information to help prepare them for federal student loan repayment. The online exit counseling process typically takes 20-30 minutes and must be completed in a single session.

As another school year draws closer to an end, Nelnet continues to strive to provide resources that are valuable to our school and borrower customers. If you have questions about exit counseling, feel free to contact our School Service Center ( or 888.274.9876).
