Short‐term Tuition and Fee Loans at Texas Southern University were established to provide assistance to students who experience temporary financial difficulty in paying required tuition and fees. The maximum loan amount is not to exceed the total cost of tuition and fees. The loan must be repaid within the prescribed payment period. The application must be legible and signed by the applicant. Due to limited funds, short‐term loans are provided on a first‐come, first‐served basis. The loan application fee of $100.00 will be charged to the student’s accounts upon acceptance of the loan. A student can have only one short‐term loan per semester. Short-Term loans are only available for the Fall & Spring Terms. If the loan is not paid in full by the due date, both transcripts and registration will be blocked until account is paid in full. Failure to repay the loan will result in ineligibility to receive future short‐term loans.
