Federal Perkins Loan

The Federal Perkins Loan is a low-interest loan for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need. The University acts as the lender for the loans and collects loan payments from students according to federal regulations.

Students are automatically considered for the Perkins Loan if they apply for financial aid. Because funding for the Perkins Loan is limited, students who apply for financial aid early are most likely to receive the Perkins Loan. If you are awarded a Perkins Loan, it will appear on your financial aid award.
