Emergency Short Term loans are available in amounts up to $300 for students who are enrolled at least half time. These loans are for emergency situations only and are limited to two times during the students stay at MSU. There is a $5.00 processing fee and the loans must always be paid back during the semester they are taken out. Students who apply for these loans must have a way of paying their tuition for the current semester in addition to the emergency loan. Students may apply in person at the MSU Student Financial Aid Office (Main Campus) Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. & 4 p.m.
