Loan Consolidation

Consolidation is a step that requires serious consideration before embarking. Dartmouth provides no guarantees of any of the services offered nor do we endorse or prefer one over another.

Please visit the Federal Student Aid website for information on loan consolidation. The Institute of Student Loan Advisors also gives a list of lenders.

U.S. News & World Report recently created a guide that breakdowns the different types of student loan consolidation, how they work and what students should know before considering them.

Exit Interviews

An exit interview is a loan counseling session in which you are advised of your loan repayment schedule, obligations, and rights to deferment and/or cancellation. If you received a loan(s) during your enrollment at Dartmouth College and are no longer enrolled, you are required to complete an exit interview. We are required by the federal government to conduct this exit interview whenever you are no longer enrolled as at least a half-time student.

You will receive an e-mail from ECSI asking you to log-in to your account to complete the exit interview. Please understand that if you do not complete the exit interview a transcript hold will be placed.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the Student Loan department.
