In order to accommodate a student’s unanticipated needs that arise after the student matriculates, the law school occasionally makes loans to students who are able to demonstrate an extraordinary financial need that cannot be satisfied in any other way. The school only makes these loans when there are funds available to do so. In addition, the school makes an effort to allocate the funds as equitably as possible, keeping in mind that each student’s situation is likely to be unique.
If student wants to receive an emergency loan, the student must submit a written application to the Director of Financial Aid. The application must consist of the following four items: (1) a narrative that explains why the loan is sought and needed, (2) an amount of the loan that the student is requesting, (3) a detailed monthly budget of expenses and resources, and (4) an itemized list of any other expenses not reflected in the monthly budget. The student should also submit any other item that the Financial Aid Office may require.
