Perkins Loans

The Federal Perkins Loan Program will end September 30, 2017.

The Federal Perkins Loan is a need-based low-interest fixed rate (5%) loan to help you pay for college. The federal government, through Washburn University, makes these loans. Promissory notes are completed through the Washburn University Business Office. Loan awards range from $ 1,000 - $ 3,000. This is a loan that must be repaid, however, repayment does not begin until 9-months after you graduate, leave school or drop below half-time status.
