Eagin + Doucette Loans

The Eagin and Doucette Loans are institutional loan programs with UP acting as the lender. 

Students may see this loan on their award as either “Doucette Loan” or “Eagin Loan”. The Doucette and Eagin loans are awarded to undergraduate students. Funds for the program were donated by Blanche Eagin and Richard and Evelyn Doucette.

Doucette Loans and Eagin Loans are non-need-based, subsidized loans with interest suspended while the student is in school and during a 6-month grace period following graduation or withdrawal. Payments are automatically deferred while the student is enrolled at least half time and during the 6-month grace period. There are no origination or default fees and the interest rate is fixed at 5% (subject to annual evaluation). The repayment period is 7.5 years. These loans will not go back into deferment if a student goes on to graduate or professional school.
