Shirley Wurz Loan Fund

SUNYIT has established the Shirley Wurz Loan Fund to assist students in meeting unanticipated financial needs. Through this fund, a student can borrow up to $75 for 30 days with no interest or service charge. If the loan is not repaid on time, there is a $2.00 administrative charge assessed for each 30 day period or portion thereof until the loan is repaid. All funds must be repaid by the end of the semester during which they were borrowed. Loans will not be made during the last two weeks of the semester. To be eligible, a student must be enrolled at least half-time and working toward a degree. A student will not be able to borrow if he/she already has a loan outstanding, has continually repaid loans after the due date, owes an outstanding balance to SUNYIT or if classes are not in session. Applications can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.

Class of 1983 Loan Fund

The Class of 1983 established a loan fund to assist students by providing short-term loans (up to $300) secured by undisbursed financial aid. To be eligible, a student must have authorized federal and/or state aid from which the student is entitled to a refund. A student may take out only one Class of 1983 loan a semester and loans cannot be issued against undisbursed Federal Pell Grants or future disbursements of student loans. Applications for a Class of 1983 loan can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.

Wildcat Dollars

Students who have financial aid which exceeds their bill for the semester and have not received a refund check may be eligible to add Wildcat Dollars to their SUNYIT card from their financial aid account. The SUNYIT card is welcomed as a form of payment at our campus bookstore, Student Center food court, and all vending machines on campus. It is also welcomed at participating off-campus vendors (visit www.wildcatdollars.com for a complete list of participating locations). Wildcat Dollars can be requested through your Bannerweb account.
