MARA Study Loan Scheme was first introduced in 1966 when Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) was formed. The financial assistance was then given out in the form of full scholarships. From 1968, the financial aid for college was divided into 2 types. MARA scholarships with a 25 % repayment and MARA study loans with a 100 % repayment.

From 1 January 1985 until 31 December 1997, the financial aid was in the form of convertible loans. Students who obtained good grades upon graduation were eligible to apply to convert their MARA study loans to MARA scholarships.

Starting from 1 January 1998, this financial aid has been given out as a 100 % loan except for loans given out under the Excellent Student Scheme where students can apply to convert their MARA study loans to MARA scholarships based on their examination results.
