Financial Aid Resources
Welcome to the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law resource page. This page was created to provide our students and alumni with helpful information and other types of resources. It includes everything from money management tools, repayment and budget calculators, information on the different repayment plans and public service loan forgiveness. It is our hope that you will find this information useful and helpful.
Entrance & Exit Counseling PowerPoint Presentations
You are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions or suggestions about other resources we should include.
Federal regulations require entrance and exit counseling for all Federal loan borrowers. Pacific McGeorge students are required to complete an online entrance and exit counseling session, as well as attend an entrance and exit counseling session in person. The purpose of the entrance and exit counseling is to provide information about the repayment process and answer any questions you may have regarding your rights and responsibilities as an education loan borrower.
Online Exit Counseling
You will need your Federal PIN number to complete the Direct Loan Exit Counseling and should have the name and address of two references to include on your exit forms.
