Emergency Loan Programs
To assist students with short-term financial difficulties, the University established emergency loan programs for students who are U.S. citizens and also eligible non-citizens.
Emergency Loan Program
The University established the Emergency Loan Program to assist students who are experiencing short-term financial difficulties. This program is not intended to supplement or replace any of our financial aid programs offering long-term financial assistance. Borrowers must be regularly admitted students, enrolled in a minimum of four quarter units. A regularly admitted student does not include students in the American Language Program, Open University, Continuing Education nor Certificate programs. Applications are available in the Enrollment Information Center (first floor, Student Services and Administration Building) on the Hayward Campus or the Academic Services Center on the Concord Campus.
Emergency Loans can assist with short-term immediate needs including books and supplies and transportation costs. These loans may not be used to pay outstanding University debt such as registration fee and on-campus housing charges.
Don't Forget to File a FAFSA for Each Year
Students must apply each year to obtain financial aid or to continue receiving aid by submitting a FAFSA. FAFSA deadline for priority consideration is March 2.
