Perkins Loan

The Federal Perkins Loan is a low-interest student loan made through UNLV to help undergraduate and graduate students, meeting specific criteria, pay for their education. The Perkins Loan carries an interest rate of 5% but interest does not accrue while the borrow is enrolled in school at least half time. Students awarded and accepting a Perkins Loan must complete loan counseling and a promissory note requirement before the loan can be disbursed to the student's account.
