The loan is to be repaid in full within a five year period, with no interest. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
Financial Aid Emergency Loan Program An emergency loan program is available through the Financial Aid Office to assist students in need of a short term loan due to an unanticipated emergency. Typically, loans may not exceed $500 unless the applicant has a verifiable source of repayment, such as pending student loan funds in excess of institutional charges (i.e., tuition and fees). Students in need of an emergency loan must complete an application with the Financial Aid Office describing their need for the loan. Emergency loans are subject to the approval of the Director or Associate Director of Financial Aid. This loan must be repaid within 30 days of receipt or as stipulated in the promissory note.
Faculty Fund Emergency Loan Program The faculty has contributed to and established an emergency loan program to assist students who may have an unanticipated emergency while in attendance at California Western. Loan amounts may vary from $500 to $2,000 and are subject to the approval of the Financial Aid and Awards Committee. To apply for the emergency loan, eligible applicants must contact the Director of Financial Aid for a Faculty Fund Emergency Loan Program application. The application will be reviewed by the Director and then submitted to the faculty committee for deliberation. This loan must be repaid within 30 days of receipt or as stipulated in the promissory note.
