Entrance loan counseling sessions offered at Victoria College

Kim Obsta

Victoria College will be offering entrance loan counseling sessions July 9-11 at the VC Main Campus, the Gonzales Center and Calhoun County Center for those who will be receiving student loans during the 2013-14 school year.

The Victoria session will be July 9 from 5-6 p.m. at VC’s Health Sciences Center in Room 130. The Gonzales session will be July 10 from 5-6 p.m. at VC’s Gonzales Center, 424 E. Sarah DeWitt in Gonzales. The Calhoun session will be July 11 from 4-5 p.m. at VC’s Calhoun County Center, 900 N. Virginia St. in Port Lavaca.

Attending a session is mandatory for all first-time Victoria College loan recipients. Pre-registration is not required and students do not need to bring any information with them to the sessions. If students are completing a loan request form, they must know their total loan debt as this information is required. If the total loan debt is unknown, students can retrieve this information at StudentLoans.gov by clicking on My Financial Aid History and then Financial Aid Review, according to Kim Obsta, Victoria College Financial Aid director.
 
“A Direct Student Loan is an obligation to the Department of Education and has certain responsibilities and requirements,” Obsta said. “It is extremely important that any person entering in this type of agreement understands fully the commitment and obligation he or she is undertaking, and the face-to-face counseling session is the place for this.”
