Loan Office of Samford University

Specializing in Perkins, CIOS and Health Profession Loans

The Loan Office of Samford University is in Room 105A located on the first floor of Frank Samford Hall across from the Financial Aid Office and next to the Bursar's Office.

ECSI (Educational Computer Systems,Inc.), a billing service for Federal Perkins, CIOS, NDSL, HPSL, Cohron and institutional loans is under contract with Samford University to perform all the billing and accounting for these loans.

If you have been awarded Federal Perkins, CIOS, Cohron or Health Profession loans through the Samford University Financial Aid Office, you no longer need to come to the Loan Office to complete loan paperwork. Please go to the ECSI website to sign promissory notes.
