Emergency Fund

The Morris R. Gelblum Emergency Loan Fund exists in order to provide short-term emergency loans to students enrolled in the School of Law. These loans may not exceed $600 and must be repaid within three months of the loan date. Under certain circumstances, the Assistant Dean for Student Services and/or the Director for Student Activities may extend the period of repayment if requested by the student prior to the loan due date. A period of repayment will not be extended after the loan due date has passed, and it is the responsibility of the student to request an extension prior to the loan due date.

Failure to repay a loan before the due date without an appropriate extension will mean denial of future emergency loans. Failure to repay a loan may also result in a hold being placed on a student's semester registration, and no degree will be conferred until the loan is repaid.

A decision will ordinarily be made on all applications within two hours after they are received in the Office of Student Services. For any questions about this loan fund, see Dean John Kasprzak.
