Graduation from Capital University Law School requires coordinating with the offices of Records and Registration, Financial Aid, and Professional Development to make sure all requirements have been fulfilled prior to graduation. All prospective graduates must complete the following:
Complete these forms:
Financial Aid Exit Interview
(Complete no earlier than 3 months prior to graduation.)
As a condition of graduation, students who have borrowed federal loans to finance their legal education are required to complete exit counseling. This exit counseling requirement can be fulfilled by completing online exit counseling at https://studentloans.gov under the Graduate/Professional Students tab. This online exit counseling will remind students of their rights and responsibilities as a borrower and update their contact information with the federal government. Failure to complete exit counseling may result in placing a hold on a student’s final transcript.
Additionally, students are strongly advised to attend a Loan Repayment Workshop (offered in the spring semester), provided by AccessLex to all 3Ls and 4Ls. This workshop will provide borrowers with important information about repayment and debt management. Students will be provided all necessary information about payment plan options, deferment and forbearance benefits, and repayment incentives available to them. This is an excellent opportunity for students to ask any questions they may have about the repayment process.
The Financial Aid Office will contact students about the Loan Repayment Workshops once they are scheduled. There will be sessions offered at various times to try to accommodate students' schedules as much as possible. Please note, it is the student's responsibility to complete the exit counseling requirement.
You must be current with your financial obligations to the University. Such obligations may include, but are not limited to, tuition fees, parking infraction fees, etc.
