The University of Manitoba emergency loan program provides short-term assistance to students who experience unexpected and immediate financial expenses or constraints. This includes, but is not limited to, unanticipated personal living costs, and unexpected delays in government loans, and other award funding.
Emergency loan funds are not intended to act as a regular supplement or substitute for traditional forms of student financial aid, i.e. government loans, scholarships, and bursaries. Therefore, all students applying for emergency funding are expected to have a reasonable financial plan in place to cover normal school expenses, including tuition and living expenses, at the beginning of each academic session.
In order to be considered for an Emergency Loan a student must:
- Be enrolled as a full-time student in the current academic session to which you are applying for.
- Have repaid all outstanding emergency aid from previous academic sessions;
- Have obtained a passing grade of "D" or better on all courses taken in the previous academic session;
- Provide documentation including that they will be receiving sufficient funding to meet tuition and living costs for the academic session (i.e. Government Loan Notice of Assistance, loan documents, sponsorship letter);
- Be able to explain clearly why emergency assistance is required and how the loan will be repaid.
The deadline for repayment will be indicated on your emergency loan agreement.
