Information on Federally Mandated Entrance Interviews

The federally mandated entrance interviews are required for all students receiving a Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Stafford Loan or a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan for the first time at SVA. If a student has received a Stafford Loan at a previous institution, they do not need to attend the entrance interview here at SVA.


This does not apply to a Federal Perkins Loan, as all students awarded this loan must attend an entrance interview. Students must attend an entrance interview before any loan proceeds may be received. The entrance interview is an information session explaining the student’s rights and responsibilities regarding these loan programs.


For the 2015 spring semester our entrance interview session will be held in room 311 of the 209 East 23 Street building. Please contact our office for the dates and times of available entrance sessions. 

Should you have any questions please contact us by phone at 212.592.2030 or by email at fa@sva.edu.
