Perkins Loans

The Federal Perkins Loan program is a need-based loan administered by UW-Platteville. The loan requires the first time borrowers undergo Entrance Loan Counseling and fill out Perkins Master Promissory Note (MPN). The loan is interest free as long as student is enrolled at least half time at an eligible institution. Repayment of the principal plus 5% interest per year begins nine (9) months after graduation, enrollment dropping below half time status or leaving the university.
