The Federal Perkins Loan program has expired as of October 1, 2017. The Federal Perkins Loan is a low interest, need-based loan. The Financial Aid Office determined the award amounts annually based on the amount of funds available. Perkins Loans were awarded after all Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Loans for which the student is eligible. The loan has a 5% fixed interest rate. After the student stops attending at least half-time, there is a 9-month grace period. Repayment begins and interest starts accruing after the grace period.


All Perkins Loans awarded at UW-Platteville are serviced by ECSI.  Students who have questions about repayment, loan deferment, or loan forgiveness should contact ECSI at 1-888-549-3274.
