Schell Loans


If you have been awarded a Schell Loan, you must come in person to the Bursar's Office to sign your loan note beginning July 28, 2009. You will be required to complete a reference sheet before you can sign the promissory note. The reference sheet must be updated yearly and requires complete parent information. This includes full names, complete addresses, and employment of parents/guardian. Four references are also required. Please be prepared with the names, complete addresses, and telephone numbers.

**Note: Federal Perkins, Nursing, or Schell Loan amounts will not be credited to your student account and refunds will be delayed until all loan documents have been completed.

Once your loan(s) go into repayment, Kent State University will manage your account at the Perkins Loan Collection Department located in the Bursar's Office, Room 131 Schwartz Center, PO BOX 5190, Kent OH 44242. The office phone number is 330-672-2626 Option 2. However, you will receive statements from our billing agent, Heartland Campus Solutions ECSI. Any questions or problems you may have will be directed to our office.
