Leopard Loans allow students to begin and complete their education at Temple College. These loans are fully funded by donors who believe that the completion of a certificate or degree will allow students to live independently. We require repayment of all loans in order to continue loaning funds to new students.

Leopard Loans offer students the ability to stay focused on their classes instead of worrying about financial pressures. The Foundation offers short-term loans of no more than $900.00 available at no interest.

Students who received scholarship awards are eligible for a Leopard Loan in the amount of their scholarship.

Eligible Uses: Ineligible Uses:
  • Tuition
  • Books

Loans must be paid off by the end of the semester in which they are applied for (Fall, Spring or Summer). Once a loan has been repaid, a student is eligible to apply for another loan provided repayment of the prior loan was made as agreed upon. Please note a hold will be placed on your Temple College account if  the loan is not paid off by the due date. This will prevent being able to register for a new semester or acquiring a transcript.

Please be prepared to upload your proof of enrollment at Temple College, and any supporting documents you have. You will be contacted if any additional documentation is needed.
