Educate yourSELF with a Minnesota SELF Loan

Welcome to Online Student Loan Counseling for the SELF Loan Program

SELF Loan Counseling is designed to help student borrowers understand their obligations under the SELF Loan Program. This counseling may also benefit co-signers. Counseling is required to be completed for each SELF Loan the student applies for.

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.

Here’s How It Works

  • Review the SELF counseling material.
  • At the end of the material, you will be given a 10-question quiz. You must get 100% of the answers correct in order to pass.
  • If you do not answer all the questions correctly, the correct answer and the text relating to the answer will appear. You will then be given the opportunity to answer a new set of questions covering the areas you missed. You will be given two chances to answer any questions missed.
  • If, after three tries, you still haven’t answered the 10 questions correctly, please review the counseling information and try later.
  • Start the application
