Entrance Counseling Requirement for Student Loans

Federal Entrance Loan Counseling

Continuing your education is a major investment in your future. If you decide to make loans a part of this investment, managing the debt you incur is a major responsibility. To insure that you understand this responsibility and the obligation you are assuming federal regulations require that you complete a entrance counseling session prior to obtaining a Federal Direct Stafford or a Federal Direct Graduate Plus loan. University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry offers online entrance counseling through the Department of Education website.  YOU MUST SELECT SCHOOL CODE G01329 to ensure confirmation is sent to the school.

Once you have passed the Entrance Counseling Quiz, the system will then display your Direct Stafford and Direct Graduate Plus Loan Rights and Responsibilities as a borrower. You should print this page for your records.

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 415.749.3341.
