About the Loan

Beginning with the 2015-16 academic year, the US Department of Education started winding down the Federal Perkins Loan program, limiting who could borrow new loans. As such, no Federal Perkins Loans are available at the University of Houston for the 2017-18 academic year. Repayment information is provided below for previous Perkins borrowers.

Repayment

Repayment begin 9 months after the student:
  • Graduates,
  • Leaves the University or
  • Drops below half-time enrollment.
All payments on the Perkins loan will be made to University of Houston through the ESCI loan servicer (1-888-549-3274). Repayment terms are up to 10 years, depending on the total amount of Perkins funds owed.
