You must receive exit counseling before you leave school to make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities as a borrower. You will receive information about repayment and your loan provider will notify you of the date loan repayment begins (usually six months after you graduate, leave school or drop below half-time enrollment). Half time at TSJC is defined as six to eight credit hours for each semester in attendance (Fall, Spring and Summer).
