Why do I have a Perkins/NFLP hold on my records?
There are a number of reasons why you may have a Perkins/NFLP hold on your records. The three primary reasons are:
- If your loan account is past due.
- If your loan data information form is incomplete or not properly filled out.
- If you haven't completed an exit interview or are missing information associated with the exit interview. Please visit ECSI to complete your exit interview.
It is important that you keep your account current. It is strongly advised that you contact the Perkins Office before you fall behind in your payments to discuss payment and/or deferment options.
Failure to pay or to file proper deferment in a timely manner may result in:
- Hold on transcripts
- Loss of eligibility for any new or additional student financial aid
- Damage to your credit rating
- Late Fees
- Loss of cancellation and deferment benefits
- Interception of Connecticut tax refund
- Placement of your account with a collection agency (including associated collection and legal costs)
- Assignment of your account to the Federal government
Once you have fulfilled your requirements you must contact the UConn Federal Perkins Loan Office to have your hold removed. 860-486-4835
