The mission of the Perkins Student Loan office is to provide quality service to individual borrowers once a Perkins loan has been awarded and through repayment and to do so in an efficient and friendly manner. Managing the Perkins Loan portfolio effectively ensures the availability of funds for future students since new awards are made possible from repayment of prior Perkins loans.
Once a Federal Perkins Student Loan has been awarded, this office assists in: obtaining the master promissory note and entrance interview, disbursing the funds to the student account, presenting the exit interview, and once in repayment status, processing any eligible deferments or cancellations. We work closely with our servicer, ECSI, who collects our loans. All loan payments are returned to current students in the form of new Perkins loan awards.
In addition to servicing the Federal Perkins Student Loans, this office also administers the Nursing Faculty Loan Program. Requirements of this program such as employment verification, cancellation and deferment of repayment are handled through this office and repayment is serviced by ECSI.
