  • Exit interview process

    Federal Requirement

    Federal regulations require that students who are no longer enrolled at Wayne State University, enrolled less than half-time, or have graduated must complete an Exit Interview. The Exit Interview is a counseling session that will inform you, the borrower, of your rights and responsibilities in regards to your student loans, including an explanation of repayment. 

    The Process

    Once you have been identified as no longer being enrolled at WSU you will be separated from the institution and ECSI will email you exit information. Please check your Wayne State email as Heartland ECSI should have sent instructions to complete your online Exit Interview along with a PIN number to access your account on the ECSI Website http://borrower.ecsi.net/

    Graduation

    After you have applied for graduation you will receive a reminder email informing you of the exit counseling process. You are required to complete the exit interview process before the end of the graduating semester.

    Not Enrolled at WSU or Enrolled Less Than Half Time

    Each time you are no longer enrolled or enroll in less than half time status you will be required to complete the exit interview. Exit interview information will be sent to you via email from ECSI after the census date for semester.

    Exit Holds

    Failure to complete the exit interview counseling process will result in an exit hold on your student account. This exit hold will prevent you from receiving your diploma and transcripts. Please make sure to complete your exit counseling upon receipt of the information from ECSI.

    More Information

    More information regarding the ECSI's Exit Interview process can be found on their FAQ's  page: https://www.ecsi.net/help/faq_exits.html
