A MainSWerk study loan is granted to students who are in need of financial support. The loan must be repaid in full. The funding period is determined according to the student's needs. The borrower must provide a directly enforceable guarantee from a guarantor or a bank for each loan.
There is no legal entitlement to a MainSWerk study loan!
Guarantors can be natural persons, public institutions and banks. Natural persons must provide evidence of a net income above the garnishment allowance, less maintenance obligations, and be resident in Germany. Non-EU citizens also require a permanent residence permit. A family relationship is not required.

If several loans are granted, the repayment terms are based on the terms of the last loan granted, i.e. the repayment date of the previous loans is postponed to the repayment date of the last loan. The loans are then repaid one after the other with a monthly installment.
