Short Term Loans

Short term loans are available to assist students who need small amounts of funding to meet emergency expenses.  


Maximum Loan Amount & Availability

  • The maximum available loan is $300. 
  • Due to limited funds, short term loans are disbursed on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Our objective is to help as many students as possible; therefore the loan is granted under the following terms:

  1. You must be a degree-seeking student enrolled for the current term.
  2. Any outstanding balance must be paid in full.
  3. You must not have received a refund over $200 within the past 30 days.
  4. If you are due a refund after your short term loan has been processed, your financial aid will first apply to your short term loan balance.
  5. You must repay the loan within 60 days of approval or by the end of the term whichever is earlier.
  6. If you do not repay the loan by the end of the term a "hold" will be placed on your University records.  The hold will prevent you from registering for classes and will prevent the release of a transcript and other records until you have repaid the loan.

If approved, your loan funds will be direct deposited into your bank account (if established); otherwise you will need to pick up your loan check at the Cashiers Office in the Reese Building.  You must bring a picture ID.  Please allow 4 business days for loan processing.
