WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY LOAN?

An emergency loan covers immediate needs when a veteran’s financial aid is delayed or unavailable. Loans are interest free
and must be repaid within 30 days. Loans are for a maximum of $500, and are a one-time disbursement.

 

Only student veterans who are enrolled and plan to attend
Allan Hancock College are eligible.

 

WHY WOULD A VET NEED AN EMERGENCY LOAN?

  • VA benefits are delayed
  • Benefits are not provided in between semesters - but rent and car payments don’t stop
  • No longer eligible for financial aid or education benefits
  • Textbook purchases can’t wait for benefits
  • Medical emergencies
  • Child care

YOU SHOULD KNOW:

  • With 2 MILLION veterans residing in California, the state leads the nation in the number of veterans.
  • More than 44,000 veterans and active duty service members enrolled at a community college in 2012-13.
  • Community colleges provide the majority of vet higher education, as most veterans are ineligible for direct admission to California public universities.
  • Our role is not limited to providing academic and career training, but also to assist with the difficult adjustment transitioning to life after military service, and particularly after combat deployment.

SPOTLIGHT

Nicholas Griffin
"I believe Hancock is the greatest community college out there for so many reasons. The counselors got me on track, and the instructors go out of their way to help. Because I am doing well in math and science classes for the first time in my life, I will be able to pursue a career as an environmental engineer. I will be able to find viable solutions to real world problems because of my time here."
