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.
