Direct Loans

Tri-County Community College (TCCC) is no longer participating in the Federal Direct Loan program.

If you received a student loan at TCCC, you MUST complete your Exit Counseling when you graduate, drop below half-time, or leave the college. Exit Counseling is required by the Department of Education. This counseling session will help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower and provides useful tips and information to help you manage your loans. If graduating, exit counseling must be completed by the published last date of your completing semester. If not completed, a hold will be placed on your record preventing your from graduating. Please go to to complete your required exit counseling session. You will need your FSA User ID to get started. If you have forgotten your FSA User ID, please go to and look for links “Forgot My Username” and “Forgot My Password” at the log-in page of the website. You must provide a confirmation of your completed exit counseling to TCCC’s financial aid office.

For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 828-837-6810.
