The Perkins Loan is an alternative to the Stafford Loans. It is a federal low interest loan that MSU Denver manages all aspects of. This loan is set at a 5% fixed interest rate and has several additional benefits. We monitor all students through out the life of their loans. We ensure that the student is educated about all of the benefits of their loan and help them with all repayment options.
The Perkins Office is responsible for all aspects of your loan once it has been awarded to you by the Office of Financial Aid. Some of these duties include:
Handling all entrance/acceptance paperwork.
Conducting exit interviews for all graduating students.
Deferments and Cancellations
Assisting with the monitoring of your Perkins account.
