Emergency Loan Funds

The College of Agricultural Sciences has limited funds available for emergency loans to meet unexpected needs. These loans are intended for students who have exhausted other sources of loan funding and have indicated by their academic performance that they will complete their studies at the University.

These funds are not to be used to fund full tuition and expense needs.  Loans are only available for full-time students enrolled in certificate, associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree programs in the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Loans are approved by the Office for Undergraduate Education, but are administered by the Office of Student Aid in accordance with University policies.  Loans have minimal interest charge and can be repaid either on a short-term basis or following graduation on an extended repayment schedule.  Specific information on interest and repayment schedules can be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Services.

If you feel you would qualify for an emergency loan, an application form can be obtained at the Office for Undergraduate Education, 101 Agricultural Administration Building, University Park, PA 16802.  Your application will be reviewed and evaluated by the manager of financial and administrative services.  If approved, your application will be forwarded to the Office of Student Financial Services for processing.
