Perkins Loans

NOTE: The Federal Perkins Loan Program expired on October 1, 2017.  No new Perkins loans were funded as of that date and no Perkins loan disbursements are permitted after June 30, 2018, under any circumstances.
Perkins loans received prior to the expiration of the program were borrowed directly from the University of Oregon.  Borrowers remain obligated to repay their Perkins loans.  Heartland-ECSI (ECSI) is the billing service provider for the university.
