The Short-Term University Assistance is designed for students who anticipate a temporary cash flow problem or encounter an unexpected financial difficulty related to educational expenses. Additionally, the temporary and unexpected difficulty must be a result of an extenuating circumstance; a circumstance not experienced by a majority of your peers.
You may receive up to a maximum of $500 per term. Applications are accepted throughout each term but students must re-pay all currently due Short-Term assistance in full before being offered additional Short-Term assistance.
There is no interest charged on this short-term assistance. Rather, finance charges may be assessed against the amount of assistance received if it is not repaid in full within 90 days of disbursement to your student account.
To be considered for Short-Term Assistance, please contact the Student Service Center (SSC) to determine if your extenuating circumstance makes you eligible to complete and submit an application. SSC contact information can be found here http://ssc.osu.edu/.
