The Federal Perkins Loan is offered through Villanova University with government funds. Funds are limited and need based. You will automatically be considered for this loan if you complete the financial aid application process. These need-based loans will be awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds are expended.
*The Villanova University School of Law scheduled academic year usually consists of the fall and spring semesters but may also include the previous summer semester. The scheduled academic year is a total of at least 30 weeks in length. However, under certain circumstances, students may follow a borrower-based academic year consisting of two semesters that may not start with the traditional fall/spring term. The decision to run loans on this schedule is made on an individual basis depending on the first term of the program you are attending.
