The Office of Financial Aid sends an e-mail message to students who are on academic probation and who have been offered Stafford Loans, directing them to complete online counseling in order to maintain eligibility.
If you were notified, you must complete the online counseling by the deadline or any temporary credit (pending aid) you received for Stafford Loans will be cancelled.
You must complete BOTH of these steps to maintain your eligibility:
- Read and pass a quiz at our Academic Counseling page.
- Read and pass a quiz at our Financial Counseling page.
If you do not complete both on-line counseling sessions, your temporary funds will be cancelled and you will be billed back for the amount previously applied to your costs.
If you were directed to complete the counseling and are unable to log in to either link, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. If you were not notified, then you do not need to participate in the counseling.
You must also comply with your college or UUD’s probation requirements to be eligible to continue your enrollment at MSU, even if you choose not to borrow Federal Stafford Loan. Freshmen and sophomores should contact the UUD office at (517) 355-3515 with any questions. If you have reached junior class status, please contact the academic advisor in your college with any questions.
