Effective September 30, 2017: The US Department of Education has discontinued the Perkins Loan program. No new Perkins Loans will be made after this date. Beginning with the 2018-2019 award year, no undergraduate or graduate student may receive Perkins Loan funding.
For students who previously received a Perkins Loan at UMBC, Student Business Services oversees the loan repayment process. More information about Perkins Loans is available here. Heartland ECSI is the servicing company for all UMBC Perkins Loans:
