Federal Perkins

Missouri Western State University is discontinuing our participation in the Perkins Loan Program. As a result, we will be assigning accounts to the Department of Education.

What does this mean to me? All communication, payments, account status and granted provisions, set forth in your promissory note(s), will be transferred to the Department of Education for management of your account.

When will this occur? Missouri Western State University will begin processing accounts for submission by April 1, 2016. When your account(s) is accepted by the Department of Education we will notify you of the new contact information.

Where do I submit payments and documentation until the transfer is complete? You will continue to submit your payments, deferments, cancellations, communication, and any other documentation to University Accounting Services until you are notified of the transfer.

What if I do not wish to have my account transferred? You may pay your account in full, or if you have other federal loans you may wish to consolidate. For further information concerning consolidation please go to
