Information on Federally Mandated Exit Interviews

The federally mandated exit interviews are required for all students that received a Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Stafford Loan or a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan at SVA. 

This does not apply to a Federal Perkins Loan, as all students awarded this loan must complete an exit interview online. Students must attend an exit interview in order to receive their diploma or transcripts. The exit interview is an information session explaining the student’s rights and responsibilities regarding these loan programs.

For the 2018 Summer semester our exit interview sessions will be held at 136 West 21st Street, Room 418F on:  

   * Tuesday, June 12th: 10:00 am to 11:30 am
