Federal Perkins Loan

How much can I borrow?

Unlike the Federal Direct Loan Program, you cannot request to borrow a specific amount of money in Federal Perkins Loan. The amount you are awarded will be determined by CUNY based on your financial need and the amount of money available for the program. In recent years, Perkins Loans have ranged from $450 to $1000 per semester.

How many credits do I have to take to receive this loan?
