Federal Perkins Loan

The Federal Perkins Loan is a low-interest loan available to undergraduate students who demonstrate high financial need, are eligible for federal financial aid, and have met our priority deadline for FAFSA filing.  The student must also be enrolled at least half time and the loan may be prorated to reflect half time enrollment status. Gonzaga has partnered with ECSI Heartland to service the Federal Perkins loan and documentation regarding the Perkins loan can be found on their website.
