About the Federal Perkins Loan

The Federal Perkins Loan is awarded based on need for students attending at an institution of higher education. Once the Perkins Loan repayment period begins, the borrower will receive a repayment schedule, outlining payment amounts and deadlines. The minimum allowable payment toward the Perkins Loan is $40.00. Any payment amount above $40.00 will not be penalized. A borrower will not be penalized for early repayment. Interest will accrue on the Perkins Loan while in the repayment period. 5% annual interest will accrue on any unpaid principal loan balance.
