Emergency short-term loan application


Short-term loans are available through the Short-Term Loan Program for students experiencing emergency financial situations. Short-term loans are also available for books if a financial aid disbursement is delayed. A short-term loan is typically $500 per semester. If a student has greater need, we will review those on a case-by-case basis.
