The repayment period begins nine months after you cease to be enrolled at least half-time. The minimum monthly payment is $40. The maximum repayment period is 10 years but may be extended for up to 10 more years if Ball State determines that you are or will be a “low-income individual” as defined in the federal regulations published by the U.S. Department of Education.
You can view and pay your Perkins Loans online through Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI). ECSI administers the billing and servicing of these loans. ECSI is a billing service for Ball State, not a collection agency. With this partnership, Ball State can allow you full access to view your loan accounts, make online payments, sign up for e-billing, use electronic draft payments, obtain deferment forms online, and make online changes to your address.
