Emergency Short Term Loan Application

Short term loans are available through the Chauncey Short Term Loan Program for students who are in emergency financial situations. Short term loans are also available for books in the case that a financial aid disbursement is delayed. Short term loans must be repaid. The maximum amount of a short term loan is $500 per semester.

ASU Online students are not eligible for emergency short term loans, unless they are local and can complete the application and pick up their check in person.


  1. Complete the application below and submit it to Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.

Please Note: If you apply before 2:30PM, and your application is approved, you can pick up your loan check at Student Accounts after 10:00AM the next business day; otherwise, it will take two business days.  Money will be disbursed in the Student Accounts office. To see if funds are available for disbursement, check My ASU before going to Student Accounts.
