    Undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need, indicate a preference for loans on the FAFSA, and meet the priority funding deadlines are eligible for Perkins Loan. The interest rate is fixed at 5% and unlike the Direct Loans, there is no origination or default fee.  This loan is being phased out by the federal government for all students after October 1, 2017 and is currently no longer available to graduate students.
