Emergency Loans

Students in need of emergency funds may request a short-term loan through the Associated Students Cashiers and Ticket Office. This loan is eligible to all registered undergraduate students The loan is interest free and may not exceed $600.00 per academic quarter. A student applicant can select one of three loan options, as long as the total for any given academic quarter does not exceed the $600 limit. These options are $200, $400, or $600. There is a $5 Associated Students handling fee for each loan so the net amount received is $195, $395, and $595 respectively. In addition, the BARC Office charges a separate $10 administration fee for each loan.
