Emergency cash loans

Emergency cash loans are available to assist students who are experiencing unforeseen short term financial hardship or who are in crisis. These loans must be repaid within 30 days.

Emergency cash loans are available to students who are currently enrolled at Southern Cross University.

Emergency cash loans are only available during session time.

Normally a student is unable to apply for second Emergency cash loan if they have not repaid a previous emergency cash loan. However, applications will be considered in extreme circumstances.

Students who wish to apply for an emergency cash loan are required to submit a Student Loans eForm  and attend and interview with the Student Financial Assistance Officer, who is authorised to approve loans conforming to the Student Loans Policy.
