    How To Apply
    for SELF
    You can download the Instructions and Application*, fill out most of the forms on your computer, include the references, and return them by email or regular mail. We are trying to make this application process as easy as possible and would appreciate any suggestions that you might have for doing so. 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.
