Perkins Loans

Perkins Loans are designed especially to make higher education more affordable for students with exceptional financial need.

About Perkins Loans

Federal Perkins Loans are need-based loans, so you must file the FAFSA to receive it. The Rose-Hulman Financial Aid Office determines eligibility for this loan. Here are items to note about the Federal Perkins Loan:

  • Interest is deferred while maintaining at least half-time status.
  • Interest rate is fixed at 5%. Repayment begins nine months after the recipient ceases enrollment.
