Entering Repayment

Once you graduate, drop below half time (less than 3 credits for master's degree students or 6 credits for licensure-only students), or otherwise leave Bethel, you’ll need to prepare for repaying your federal loans.

  1. Complete exit counseling.

    If you’ve received federal loans or the TEACH grant, you must complete exit counseling to go over your rights and responsibilities.

  2. Consider federal loan consolidation.

    Consolidating federal loans could help you manage your finances with fewer monthly payments and a fixed interest rate. Learn more about the pros and cons of consolidating your federal loans.
