Dear Borrower:

University of Wisconsin - Superior is pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2013 the billing for your University of Wisconsin - Superior 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 UW-Superior.

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).

Your first statement from ECSI will arrive shortly if your loan is in repayment.With ECSI, you will be billed on the 15th of each month with your payment due on the 1st 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 are currently paying your account with UAS, Inc. by automatic monthly bank drafts you will need to provide authorization to ECSI, by logging into your online account. You must sign up by July 20, 2013, in order to have your August payment processed by the due date. Simply access the ECSI website at https://borrower.ecsi.net/ and login using the following information:

School Code: ZQ Account #: Your nine-digit social security number PIN#: «WebPin»

If you have already made your July payment to UAS, they will forward your payment to ECSI. If you have not made your July payment, please follow the payment instructions in this letter. If you choose not to pay on-line, please make your check or money order payable to University of Wisconsin - Superior, with your account number on the check, and send your payment to:

University of Wisconsin-Superior/ECSI
181 Montour Run Road
Coraopolis, PA 15108

During this conversion period we are working very closely with ECSI to ensure a smooth transition. If you have questions regarding your statement, please contact ECSI at 888-549-3274 or at webcservice@ecsi.net.

If you need further assistance, you may always contact the Perkins Loan Office at 715-394-8348 or perkinsloan@uwsuper.edu. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we strive to improve our service to you.
