Emergency Loans for Current Law Students
The Moritz College of Law maintains a small pool of funds to assist current students who, as a result of unplanned circumstances, have a need to borrow funds on a short-term basis (usually no more than 60 days). Because these loan funds are very limited, requests for an emergency loan should be made only after exhausting other possible sources of aid.
The college cannot process more than three emergency loans for one student during his/her law school career, nor will emergency loans be approved for students in the final semester of their 3L year.
The typical amount approved for an emergency loan is $500-$1,000. An application for the emergency loan is available in Room 104. The Moritz College of Law Office of Admissions and Financial Aid will make every effort to review and decide on the granting of an emergency loan within 48 hours of its submission.
Typically, funds from the emergency loans are available to the student within 5-6 business days after submitted the completed application.
