The Federal Perkins Loan Program provides long-term, low-interest loans to eligible undergraduate and graduate students admitted to a degree program and enrolled at least half-time. Need-based eligibility is determined by analyzing your FAFSA. We recommend you apply early, as funds for this program are limited.
Your official award letter will indicate whether you are eligible for a federal Perkins loan, as well as how much you are able to borrow.
Please take the following steps to receive your federal Perkins loan:
1. Accept or decline each fund on the 'My Awards' tab in FinAidOnline. If you would like to utilize less than the loan amount(s) offered to you, complete the Revision Form by clicking the "Apply Online" tab, and we can make the requested changes for you.
2. Return your completed Perkins loan master promissory note (included with your award letter) to the Office of Financial Aid.
3. Complete the Perkins loan entrance counseling session and loan interview online. When you have completed the online session, verification will be sent to our office and your requirement will have been met.
