MLK Emergency Loan

The Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Emergency Loan is an interest-free 30-day loan designed to assist students of color in meeting unusual and/or extenuating financial circumstances. This loan is intended to be used in emergency situations only. An emergency situation is defined as a condition that poses a hardship and is likely to affect a student's academic progress. Please see Audrey Kennis, the College of Design multicultural liaison officer (MLO), for eligibility criteria and application information.

We ask that you allow 72 hours or two office visits to process emergency loan applications and disburse funds. We also ask that loan recipients be responsible in the use of this service and considerate of other students facing similar situations so that we may continue to provide the same level of assistance to everyone.
