Emergency Loan

The Emergency Loan is a short-term, interest-free loan available to undergraduate students for up to $500 and graduate students for up to $750 per semester. The loan is due on the last day of the month after it is taken out (e.g. a loan taken out any day in February will be due March 31). As long as it is paid on time, there is no fee or interest. If it is paid late, there is a one-time late fee of $10.
