As you are aware, the Federal Perkins Loan Program expired on September 30, 2017. There are two critical items that you need to be aware of effective October 1, 2017.
1) We have disabled the "requires completion" links on any unsigned Perkins Loan Promissory Notes that reside on iPROMise. Students will still be able to view "completed" documents and sign their non-Perkins Promissory Notes.
2) You must ensure that all newly eligible students that have completed their loan documents were disbursed by 9/30/2017. By Submitting an advance file to Heartland, ECSI, you attest that all Perkins loans within the advance file are valid and were disbursed prior to 10/1/2017 in conformance with the Federal Perkins Loan Program Extension Act of 2015, enacted December 18, 2015.
