Perkins Loan Information
What is a Perkins loan?
The Perkins loan is a federally funded loan administered by the University. The loan amount for Perkins loans range from $500 to $4,000. This loan is based on financial need. The interest rate is fixed at 5% and the interest is deferred while a student is enrolled at least half-time. Repayment is made through the Bursar's Office and begins 9 months after graduation or less than half-time enrollment.
