SHORT TERM LOANS
Short term loans are given for books, tuition, and student insurance. The short term loan application is obtained at the Financial Aid Office (105 SSB). A $15.00, non-refundable processing fee is paid at the cashiers’ windows (165SSB). Bring the completed application to Room 155 to sign the promissory note. The loan approval is based on your credit bureau report and previous short term loan history. Interest accrues from the day the loan is approved at 1% a month. If the loan is not paid by the due date, a registration and transcript hold will be placed until the loan is paid. Interest and late charges will continue to accrue. At thirty days or more past due, the loans may be referred for collections or litigations.
The lender for these loans is the bank or credit union you designated as your lender. You may have borrowed from more than one bank or credit union. The University of Utah does not collect on these loans. They are usually collected by a secondary market or loan servicer. The following is a partial list of loan servicers:
