Drop-in private loan counseling is only offered to students that have previously borrowed a private loan and completed private loan counseling at the University of Iowa. First time private loan borrowers must schedule an appointment in MyUI.

A drop-in private loan counseling meeting will not be as detailed as private loan counseling by appointment. In a drop-in private loan counseling meeting, a financial aid advisor will review your loan amount and costs for the year. In a scheduled private loan counseling appointment financial aid advisors go into more depth regarding loan totals and repayment. If you've completed private loan counseling previously, you can choose between drop-in private loan counseling or a private loan counseling appointment. 

Our office is currently closed for in person drop-ins so we are offering drop-ins through Zoom.
