Perkins Loan is a federal loan that is a need-based loan awarded to students who have exhausted all other means of financial aid. Repayment begins 9 months after graduation, upon withdrawal from the university, or when a student is no longer enrolled at least half-time. Interest accrues at 5% annual during repayment. The minimum monthly payment for a Perkins Loan is $40.00. Late fees are assessed on past due payments. Your loan balance and repayment history are reported monthly to National Credit Bureaus in accordance with federal regulations.

Georgia Southwestern State University is no longer participating in the Federal Perkins Loan Program.

Students that received a Federal Perkins Loan from Georgia Southwestern State University can contact the Department of Education at 1-866-313-3797 or DOE ESCI Federal Loan Servicer, PO BOX 105765, Atlanta, GA 30348.

Upon graduation, withdrawal from the university, or when a student drops below half-time status, students are required to complete an exit interview.  You will receive exit interview paperwork from the Department of Education. The exit interview information must be completed and returned to the Department of Education. 

Repayment can be deferred if you are enrolled at least half-time at an eligible institution and for performance of certain services.  To receive information regarding different types of deferments and cancellations, contact the Department of Education at 1-866-313-3797 or DOE ESCI Federal Loan Servicer, PO BOX 105765, Atlanta, GA 30348.
