Perkins Information

Youngstown State University is pleased to announce that as of October 2013 the billing for your Youngstown State University Federal Perkins Student Loans will be handled by Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI). ECSI is a billing service provider for the college, not a collection agency. We believe this change is a benefit to both borrowers and Youngstown State University.

ECSI provides web-based access to your account, allowing you to verify when your payments have been received, update address and phone information, verify account balances, obtain loan payoff amounts, sign-up for electronic billing, and make payments. ECSI provides payment options such as recurring electronic funds transfer and credit card payments (additional fee applies to some eCheck and credit card payments).

Please call ECSI at 1-888-549-3274 for login and user information.

With ECSI, you will be billed at the end of each month with your payment due on the 15 of the next month. If you are currently in a deferment or grace period, you will receive statements prior to the first payment due date.

If you choose not to pay on-line, please make your check or money order payable to Youngstown State University, with your account number on the check, and send your payment to:

Youngstown State University/ECSI, 100 Global View Dr, Warrendale, PA 15086.

If you have questions regarding your statement, please contact ECSI at 888-549-3274 or at If you need further assistance, you may always contact Youngstown State University at (330) 941-3135.
