Emergency Loan


Students with temporary critical financial need due to unforeseen circumstances, or delays in funding beyond their control, may be eligible for an emergency loan. This funding program is most useful when a student loan disbursement date does not match up with a tuition installment deadline and the timeline falls outside the 30-day Tuition and Fee Deferral window.

Emergency funding is not intended to assist with the regular cost of living or predictable educational expenses.


  • financial need is a result of an unforeseen circumstance
  • has exhausted all other financial resources
  • progressing satisfactorily in the program
  • has no outstanding debt to the university
