About to graduate from the School of Medicine, Dentistry or Nursing? Congratulations!

But before you leave us, you will need to take care of a little business: An exit session is mandatory for anyone who received loan funds while at UCSF and attendance will be verified.

If you borrowed any university-based loans, (Perkins, Health Professions , Loan for Disadvantaged Students, Nursing Student Loan, Nurse Faculty Loan or University Loan) you must attend an exit session with Student Accounts and must call to schedule your attendance for one of the sessions listed below.  Bring two references (two relatives and two non-relatives and address and telephone information.

Direct (Stafford)/Grad PLUS-only loan recipients do not need to schedule an appointment and may attend the session of their choice.
