The TEACH Grant exit counseling session provides information about the terms and conditions of a TEACH Grant service agreement, as well as the rights and responsibilities that apply if your TEACH Grant is converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.

Students who have received any TEACH Grant funds during their enrollment at Northwest must complete an exit counseling session before leaving the University.
