Financing Your Education - Federal Perkins Loans

by:
The Federal Perkins Loan Program helps those undergraduate postsecondary students that cannot afford their educational expenses without financial assistance with a low interest loan. The loan is in place to help them meet their educational expenses to the completion of a postsecondary degree.


While the Federal Perkins Loan Program is overseen by the Department of Education, the student will contact their institute of choice that they are attending or plan to attend. In order to be eligible students must be enrolled in eligible schools that may be public or private nonprofit institutions of higher education.


Students are required to sign a statement of educational purpose, a statement of registration compliance, are not allowed to owe a refund on another a Title IV grant, and cannot currently have a Title IV loan that is defaulted and cannot already have a bachelors degree. The student must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
