The Federal Perkins Loan Program is a revolving loan fund maintained by the institution to provide long-term loans to students who demonstrate financial need. This loan is repayable with interest to the institution. Repayment of the Perkins Loan begins nine months after a student graduates, withdraws from school, or drops below half-time enrollment. The interest rate for this loan is fixed at 5%. The loan may be repaid over a period of 10 years. The amount of the installment payment will depend upon the size of the loan debt, but the minimum monthly payment is $40. If a student is awarded a Perkins Loan for the first time, an email explaining how to e-Sign the Master Promissory Note will be e-mailed to their university email address.
