The Emergency Education Loan assists CSUSM students by providing immediate financial support when they need assistance with unexpected emergency expenses, including supporting victims/survivors of sexual or interpersonal violence. Registered students may begin applying for their Emergency Educational Loan Application 10 days before the term begins through add/drop. Emergency loans are due the fifth week of the term. The Emergency Loan program is designed to bridge the student until financial aid is received. Loans for payment of registration fees are not considered to be unanticipated and therefore are not emergencies as defined under this program. Each application is reviewed on a case by case basis. The Emergency loan form is available online and may be submitted online during emergency loan offerings (approximately 10 days before the beginning of the term). For more information visit Emergency Loan Information.
The Student Emergency Fund provides compassionate assistance to students who encounter unforeseen financial emergencies or catastrophic events that disrupt their progress towards a degree. Funded by Associated Students Inc. and private donations, the Student Emergency Fund is a collaboration between Student Affairs, University Advancement, and ASI. These funds are not intended to be used for routine expenses nor as a consistent supplement to a student’s education funding sources. All requests must be urgent in nature. Funds will not be awarded to the same student more than once during an academic year. The Student Emergency Fund is available to currently enrolled CSUSM students who encounter an unexpected financial emergency or catastrophic event in which their basic needs and/or ability to function as a student are impacted. Qualifying examples include but are not limited to:
