The United Methodist Loan Program is a church-wide educational service providing loans to help supplement the financial needs of students. Funding for loans is provided through offerings, wills, annuities and other designated gifts. Loans are granted on a first-come, first-served basis until allocated funds have been used. 

How do I qualify?
To qualify for a loan, the borrower must:

  • be an active, full member of a United Methodist Church for at least one year prior to application.
  • be at least 18 to complete the application process.
  • be enrolled in an accredited school at least half-time.
  • have a cosigner for this loan. The cosigner will be contacted and required to complete a portion of the application.
