Federal Perkins Loan Features

  • Interest does not accrue while you are in school or in deferment.
  • There are no loan origination fees.
  • The interest rate is a fixed 5.0% when the loan enters repayment.
  • The University of Colorado Boulder is your lender for this loan so once your loan enters repayment, you will make payments back to the University.
  • Repayment begins 9 months after you graduate, drop below half-time or withdraw.
  • Funding is limited so the actual awarded amount may be less than the federal maximum and may also vary from year to year.
