Emergency Loans

To be eligible for an Emergency Tuition and Fee loan students may not receive any other form of financial assistance and must be enrolled. The cost for a loan will be an origination fee of 1% of the amount of each emergency tuition and fee loan. 
Emergency Tuition and Fee Loans will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted or the processing period ends, whichever comes first. Any credits to your student account (Financial Aid, etc.) must first be applied to any unpaid balance. If any additional charges are added to your student account after the initial Emergency Tuition and Fee Loan is entered the loan will be increased to pay for the balance up to the 12th class day. Please see below specific dates based on the term you are applying for.
