Princeton Receivables Emergency Loans Receivable

Function

The Short Term Emergency Loan Application is a custom application developed in-house using Java EE technology that integrates with PeopleSoft Financials and is responsible for supporting the business needs of the Bursar Office to assist students who need a Short Term Emergency Loan. Short Term Emergency Loans are given to Graduate Students (and on very rare occasions Undergraduate Students) to take care of an emergency need for cash with the expectation that it will be repaid in a short period of time.  Most loans are repaid within the issuing academic year.  Students should only have one active loan at a time, but exceptions are made.

Repayment for the majority of loans is through stipend deduction; small percentages of accounts are paid through other Loan proceeds; and, small percentages repay by coupon.

A Dean in the Graduate School normally faxes a completed application to the Bursar office which indicates the authorized amount of the loan and repayment terms.
