The United States Congress recently mandated that private loan lenders require borrowers to complete an Applicant Self-Certification form when requesting any private educational loans. Do not submit your self-certification form to this office as Marquette cannot complete this form for you.

The following sections of the form must be completed from your financial aid information on CheckMarq. If you have not been awarded, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.
