Since 1991 the Student Emergency Loan Fund has been helping out students at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities get past temporary financial emergencies. In that period of time, we’ve helped out thousands of students by giving them quick loans with low fees and a constant interest rate. Please feel free to take a tour of our services…
SELFund is designed for students who find themselves in an unexpected financial emergency that affects their ability to function as a student. We specialize in giving students one-time, loans on a basis of need.
All applicants must be registered at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities for the term in which they are applying for the loan.
A SELFund employee may verify your employment, credit history, or any other relevant information that pertains to the repayment of the loan. This includes any prior loans from the SELFund and the University of Minnesota.
All applicants must have a source of verifiable income-a way to pay the loan back in 120 days. This may include financial aid, employment, or other assistance. In any case, we need verification. Money from parents or tax returns are not considered verifiable.
