Perkins Loan Information


How do I apply for a Perkins loan?

Students interested in a Perkins Loan should send an email to fa.questions@wku.edu indicating their interest in the loan and requesting that their eligibility be reviewed.  If the award can be added, the student will receive a reply indicating the amount of the award and will be directed to complete the additional documentation needed for the Perkins Loan. 

Perkins loan funds are limited, so priority is typically given to upperclassmen that have received a Perkins loan in a prior academic year.  However, a waiting list is maintained in the Department of Student Financial Assistance and in the event funds become available, students are awarded in the order in which their name was added to the list.
