Federal Perkins Loan

Effective with federal law that took effect on September 30, 2017, students can no longer receive Perkins Loans.

Borrowers with prior Perkins Loans can learn about loan repayment options by contacting either the college that provided the loan or the college’s loan servicer. General information is also available at the Perkins Loan page of the Federal Student Aid website.
