WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY LOAN?

An emergency loan covers immediate needs when a veteran’s financial aid is delayed or unavailable. Loans are interest free
and must be repaid within 30 days. Loans are for a maximum of $500, and are a one-time disbursement.

 

Only student veterans who are enrolled and plan to attend
Allan Hancock College are eligible.

 

WHY WOULD A VET NEED AN EMERGENCY LOAN?

  • VA benefits are delayed
  • Benefits are not provided in between semesters - but rent and car payments don’t stop
  • No longer eligible for financial aid or education benefits
  • Textbook purchases can’t wait for benefits
  • Medical emergencies
  • Child care

YOU SHOULD KNOW:

  • With 2 MILLION veterans residing in California, the state leads the nation in the number of veterans.
  • More than 44,000 veterans and active duty service members enrolled at a community college in 2012-13.
  • Community colleges provide the majority of vet higher education, as most veterans are ineligible for direct admission to California public universities.
  • Our role is not limited to providing academic and career training, but also to assist with the difficult adjustment transitioning to life after military service, and particularly after combat deployment.

"The agribusiness program and the different teachers in this field have helped me in so many ways and shaped what I want to do in my life. They have also helped me get an internship. This program has prepared me for Cal Poly by not only being involved and helping in the community but by helping me realize how many people in the community are willing to help students succeed. My Career goal is to transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and someday be involved in the nursery business interacting with different plant breeders."
