Perkins Loans in Repayment

Reed College is the lender for the Federal Perkins Loan Program and repayment is made to the college. You will receive bills from ACS, our billing servicer. Our ACS bill will request that you make your check payable to Reed College. Repayment of the loan does not begin until nine months after you have ceased being at least a half-time student at Reed. This nine-month period is called a grace period because during this time, no payments are due and interest does not accrue.

If you are attending an accredited school, either here or abroad, at least half time, you may qualify for deferment. To see if your school qualifies please check the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) website.

If you are unable to make a payment for any reason, your loan may be eligible for deferment, cancellation or forbearance. Please contact the Reed College Business Office; we are here to help!
