Federal Perkins Loans Entrance Counseling and Promissory Note

Students awarded Perkins Loans must complete Perkins Loan entrance counseling and sign a Perkins Loan promissory note each academic year.

The entrance counseling and the promissory note are to be completed on the web.

The Federal Perkins Loan entrance counseling and promissory note for 2012-2013 are now available on the ECSI website for completion by students awarded Perkins Loans for 2012-2013. See below for important instructions and the link to the site.
Perkins Loan checks cannot be produced for students who have not completed the entrance counseling or signed the promissory note.

You will be asked to provide the following information:

  • Name and address of your parent or nearest living adult relative; next of kin; a reference (someone who does not live where you or the others you list live)
  • Your driver's license number and state of issue

To begin, go to our Perkins Loan Counseling. If you recently received the award, it may be a week or two before the information is available for you on the website. If your information is not available yet, please check back on that site in a week.

Please read all provisions and the rights and responsibilities material. You are required to complete the quizzes and provide all the necessary information. Allow one hour to complete. You may print the entrance interview and promissory note. The school will be notified that you have completed the process.

Keep your copies of the loan papers in a safe place for future reference.
