The Faculty maintains an emergency loan fund intended to support students who experience short-term emergency cash flow problems. In cases of emergency when personal resources, and government student loan and line of credit funds have been exhausted, students may access this loan fund.

The loans are interest-free and have to be repaid to the Faculty before registration for the next academic year or before graduation. Sanctions will be enforced for not repaying emergency loans on time.

The application for an emergency loan is separate from the application for other types of financial assistance, and can be obtained by contacting the Faculty’s Financial Aid Office at financialaid.law@utoronto.ca or by telephone (416) 978-5842.
