What is the Emergency Loan Program?
Emergency Student Loans (ESL) are short-term no interest loans used for extraordinary circumstances that may arise during a student’s enrollment at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Extraordinary circumstances are those that create a financial hardship that cannot be alleviated by alternative funding options.
The Financial Aid reviews all ESL requests. Students with past due ESL balances will not be permitted to register, to receive grades, transcripts, or bar certifications. Only one ESL is allowed per semester for a maximum of $1,000.00 (summer session will be considered a semester for ESL purposes) that will be provided to a student. The maximum number of emergency loans shall not exceed four, and the aggregate amount of ESL’s shall not exceed $4,000.00, whichever comes first, during a student’s course of study at the college.
For more information on ESLs, please contact the Financial Aid department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, ESL’s cannot be issued electronically via CASHNet®.
