IF you have been awarded a Perkins Loan, you may download a Perkins Promissory Note and attach to your award letter when returning it to the Troy Financial Aid Office. The address is printed on the award letter.
The Perkins Loan Program (formerly NDSL) provides low-interest loans to help undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional financial need pay for their higher education. The general loan limits depend, in part, on the student’s year in school. Students attending school at least half-time do not begin repaying their loan until nine months after they graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time status. Less-than-half-time students may have a different grace period. Borrowers have up to 10 years to repay the loan. Troy University has limited access to Perkins Loan funds. Priority is given to students with the lowest EFC, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), who also receive Federal Pell Grants. There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive a Perkins Loan, so it is important to apply early to have a better chance. Perkins Loans are based on the availability of funds at Troy University.

You can rehabilitate a defaulted NDSL or Federal Perkins Loan only once.
