STUDENT LOAN COUNSELING is mandated by law for those who borrow federal loans to pay for college or graduate school. Yet each year, students graduate or leave school unaware of how much money they borrowed, or worse, that they have debt at all.

This could be in the form of annual mandatory loan counseling, or more targeted counseling for students hitting certain financial milestones or who are exhibiting signs they may be at risk of making a financial misstep.
