Short Term Loans



Short Term Loan funds are sent to Higher One and distributed via the student's chosen refund preference the following day.

Short Term Loan funds are subject to the payment plan schedule for the current term and will be included in the plan's installment amounts. For example: a $300 loan borrowed before the first payment plan due date will increase the first installment by $105.

Short Term Loan Requests may be denied if the student does not have a good credit history with the University.
