Graduate Eagin + Graduate Doucette Loans | University of Portland

Graduate Eagin + Graduate Doucette Loans

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

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

Graduate Doucette Loans and Graduate 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 the university and during the 6-month grace period. There are no origination or default fees and the interest rate is fixed at 2% (subject to annual evaluation). The repayment period is 7.5 years. These loans will not go back into deferment if a student transfers to a different school.
