Things to Know Before You Go

Regardless of why your are leaving EVMS, the Office of Financial Aid wants to help you leave on the road to successful repayment of any student loan obligations you may have incurred.  

If you have completed your program, congratulations!  You will be required to attend an exit loan counseling session during your last term of enrollment.  There is also an online exit counseling process to complete.  Both are recommended, but unless you are a distance student (CEA or some MPH), you are required to attend the in-person session. 

If you are having to take a leave of absence or withdraw from EVMS, you must complete the exit interview process.  The best way to guide you through what to expect involves an in-person interview. If an emergency pulls you away, we can mail an exit counseling packet to you. 

If you are leaving during a term, you need to follow the steps outlined in your program's student handbook.  That will assure that each office needing to know of your change in status will be advised.  The Financial Services Office will complete the Return of Title IV funds process which determines how much of your financial aid you will be allowed to keep to cover any account charges.  Note that depending on when you are withdrawing, you may have a balance due because of insufficient financial aid.  

For complete information regarding withdrawal and refund policy, please see Financial Services.
