Apply for a $1,000 – $3,000 loan 

Applications must be email-dated or postmarked by July 1, although applications may be accepted at other times under special circumstances. Your application will be reviewed, and the loan contract will normally be ready for you to sign in August, at which time you will receive your loan check. You will need a co-responsible cosigner, older than 25, who might be your parent and who must sign our agreement to repay the loan if you are unable to do so.

 

How Much/How Often

We are currently offering loans to students of any age ranging from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on your need and your request, and on how much money we have in our accounts. You can request additional loans from us for up to 4 years. You do not have to make any repayments until you leave school, but you do have to report to us each year on the progress of your education and your current whereabouts, using our one-page annual Loan Reconfirmation Statement*,which you or your cosigner can download, fill out on the computer, and return by email or regular mail each April 15.
