The SGS Emergency Loan alleviates temporary cash flow problems for students who are expecting the release of funds within 30-120 days from employment, an award instalment, the Ontario Student Assistance Program), teaching or research assistantship etc.
Loan applications are processed on an ongoing, continual basis throughout each academic session, and decisions are released within two business days. The average loan is $1,000-1,500, but may be for a larger amount depending on the relevant circumstances. The repayment date is normally no more than four months from the date of issue and the loan is interest-free until that date.
