University of Connecticut Graduate Student Senate

GSS Short-term Loan Service

The GSS Short-term Emergency Loans

The Graduate Student Senate offers short-term, interest-free emergency loans to a maximum of $1,500.00 to any graduate student who is registered at the Storrs Campus (or is enrolled in the Marine Sciences or Public Policy programs), is in good financial standing with the University of Connecticut, and meets all other eligibility criteria as outlined in the GSS Short-Term Loan Criteria.

If you would like to apply for a short-term emergency loan or a loan extension, please print out the relevant form and drop it off at the GSS Office, Student Union Room 213. ** Loan applications are often processed fastest when submitted in-person during GSS Office Hours. **

Note: We require that you provide adequate detail in describing your emergency. Descriptions of two or three words, such as "pay bills", will NOT be sufficient in explaining your financial situation and may result in the rejection of your loan application.
