Apply for a Loan

Welcome to the SELFApp® online loan application process.

Note: You are required to complete online counseling before applying. You need to start your application right after completing counseling. Otherwise, if you try to apply later, you will need to complete counseling again. Allow 30 minutes for the counseling and the application process.

Don't borrow more than you need. Remember, this isn't free money; you need to pay interest while you are in school and then repay what you borrowed.

Before you apply make sure you look into any federal education loans you may be eligible for. You should understand these benefits of federal loans:

  • No interest payments required during school for subsidized federal loans
  • Low fixed interest rates
  • Deferments
  • Forbearances
  • Loan forgiveness
  • Various repayment plans (including income-based)

Apply early to allow 4 weeks to process. Applications received after the end of your term will not be processed.
