Completing Perkins Loan documents at UCLA has never been easier. Using the Student Loan Services & Collections' (SLS&C) online electronic signature process, students who have accepted a Perkins Loan offer can conveniently fill out and submit their loan forms from most any computer with internet access! This online method:
Best of all, when students electronically complete their Perkins Loan document package they also electronically sign a Federal Perkins Loan Master Promissory Note. This master promissory note will remain valid at UCLA for up to 10 years. This means no need to fill out another set of Perkins Loan documents when accepting future Perkins Loan offers within that time period.
If you are offered and you accept a Perkins Loan on your Financial Aid Notification (FAN), you will be emailed a notice within 24 to 48 hours informing you that your Perkins Loan Master Promissory Note is available for signing. You will be directed via a hyperlink to the SLS&C website to initiate the online process.
Before beginning the process, you will need to make certain you have available the following:
If you have met the requirements stated above, you are ready to start the online signature process.
After following the link provided by email and then logging in using your UCLA Logon ID, you will be asked to complete via the web three online forms. Once completed and submitted, they will be valid for up to a 10-year period. You will not need to fill out Perkins Loan documents again at UCLA while these documents are recognized as active. (Read the Federal Perkins Master Promissory Note for further details.) At UCLA, the three forms which make up the Federal Perkins Loan online document package are: Personal Data Form, Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, Federal Perkins Loan Master Promissory Note.
You will not be able to proceed without fully completing the Personal Data Form. In submitting this form, you profess to be transmitting information that is accurate and true. You will be asked a few preliminary questions for the purpose of individualizing your PDF. (When answering a check box question, always select the answer that best describes your situation.)

You will be asked to agree to what is stated in this document. In turn, it is very important that you read the Perkins Loan Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
This is the document that is your 'promise to pay' the loan back according to the terms outlined in the note. You will be signing this document via E-Sign On-Line™ through the Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) website. Before electronically signing, it is of primary importance that you, as the borrower, read the promissory note and print a copy of it for your records.
After you have completed, printed, and submitted online your Personal Data Form, Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, Federal Perkins Loan Master Promissory Note, remember to keep your printed copies of them in a safe, secure place for future reference. Review them periodically, especially before accepting future loans, or preparing to leave UCLA, as well as prior to going into repayment.
