Perkins Loan

This loan is a low-interest (5 percent) loan for both undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional financial need. Your school is your lender and the loan is made with government funds. You must complete entrance counseling at and sign the Master Promissory Note in the Financial Aid Office.

You will be required to complete exit counseling at the same site previously mentioned any time you stop attending, attend less than half time, or graduate from Lamar University. You must repay this loan to your school. Due to recent regulatory changes, beginning with the Fall 2015 semester, the Office of Student Financial Assistance will not be awarding any new Federal Perkins Loan recipients.
