The federally funded Federal Perkins Student Loan Program is a campus based loan program that is cooperatively administered by the Bursar's Office and the Financial Aid Office. The Perkins Loan program offered a low interest rate and long-term repayment schedule.
Effective 9/30/17 the Perkins Loan Program officially ended so no new Perkins Loans have been awarded after the 2017-2018 academic year.
The SIU Perkins Loan Office is still responsible for the following:
- maintaining and administering loan documents
- billing and collecting all Perkins Student Loans that are in a repayment status
- processing deferments and cancellations
- collecting and processing payments on the loan
Borrowers can set up online access to their loan with our billing partner University Accounting Service at https://www.uasconnect.com/auth/login
** University services, including transcripts, diplomas and registration, will be withheld until past due amounts on a Perkins Loan are resolved. In addition, failure to complete your exit counseling will result in a hold on your account which will prevent these University Services.
