Federal Perkins Loan

A FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN is a low interest loan awarded by the College to students who demonstrate financial need.  Perkins Loans can be used to cover tuition or other education-related expenses. Students must begin to repay these loans to the College 9 months after graduation or 9 months after their last date of enrollment. Perkins Loans are not available to entering students.

Applying for a Perkins Loan

To determine the amount of your Federal Perkins Loan award, please review your current  financial aid award letter.

If you are eligible for an award, you must complete the Perkins Entrance Interview and the Federal Perkins Loan Promissory Note before the Federal Perkins Loan award can be disbursed to you or used to pay tuition.

A score of 100% on the Perkins Loan Entrance Interview is required in order to meet the Entrance Interview requirement.
