Information on Federally Mandated Entrance Interviews

The federally mandated entrance interviews are required for all students receiving a  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.

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.

During the 2019 Fall and Spring 2020 semesters our entrance interview sessions will be conducted at 342 East 24 Street  on the Concourse Level 200. For the month of September the schedule is as follows:

Mondays - 11:00 am to 12: 00 pm
Wednesdays - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Fridays - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm
Starting October, entrance counseling will be held twice weekly:
Wednesdays - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Fridays - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm
