Emergency Loan Program
Do you need a helping hand?
The Ron Ronacher Emergency Loan provides zero-interest emergency loans to students with dependent children experiencing financial hardship once per term. You must be enrolled in 6 undergraduate or 5 graduate credits to qualify. This loan is to be paid back to the cashier’s office four months from the time that it was borrowed, or comes out of the next term’s financial aid disbursement.
To apply, come to our office at SMSU 462, and fill out a simple form. It may take about 2 days after the loan is made for the loan to be added to your Higher One account.
Our office is open 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday. You can also call us on 503-725-9878 for more information.
