Federal Regulations allow a Federal Perkins Loan borrower to rehabilitate a defaulted loan. You, the borrower must request this. To rehabilitate, 9 consecutive, on time monthly payments must be made (amount to be determined by the Service Center). Once the rehabilitation process is completed the following will take place: The loan will return to regular status, restoring rights and benefits of the promissory note and the  Credit Bureaus will be instructed to remove the default from your credit history.  You may rehabilitate a loan ONE TIME ONLY.

Collection Agencies

If you fail to pay your loan or contact us, Federal regulations require that your loan be placed with a commercial collection agency when it becomes 120 days past due. Our office cannot set up any repayment arrangements once your account is with a collection agency.
Note: If your account is with a collection agency, but you believe you are eligible for a deferment, or cancellation, you should contact the Student Loan Service Center.

  • A hold being placed on your student record 
  • Ineligible for further Financial Aid 
  • Your account may be turned over to a collection agency and you will be responsible to pay all collection costs and legal fees.
