Emergency Funding (Rotating Loans, Tuition Assistance Bursary)

If you are experiencing an emergency financial situation, you are always welcome to book an appointment with a Financial Aid Officer to discuss your eligibility for Emergency Funding.  Emergency funding would include:

Rotating Loans

The Student Awards and Financial Aid Office offers a Rotating Loan Program.  This program is a short term loan made available to students who are experiencing temporary financial problems.  The funds are provided on an interest-free basis for a stipulated period of time (usually not longer than 3 months) and must be paid back to our office before the agreed date of repayment.  Rotating Loans cannot be used to pay tuition or residence fees.  To be eligible for these loans, students must be registered, be in good academic standing and must demonstrate that they can repay the loan by the repayment date.  Usually, students who have overdue tuition are not eligible.  An appointment with a Financial Aid Officer is necessary to apply for Rotating Loans.

Tuition Assistance Bursary

If you are experiencing a financial emergency due to unexpected circumstances beyond your control and have exhausted all other means of financing your studies, please book an appointment with a Financial Aid Officer to discuss this funding option. 

Please contact UVic Student Awards and Financial Aid at 250-721-8423 to arrange an appointment with a Financial Aid Officer.  Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 4:00pm.
