Registered students at the University of Zurich who are currently in financial straights can apply for a case-of-hardship credit. We aim to offer quick, uncomplicated help and generally review these applications one to two days after receiving them. However, we do require proof that, through no fault of your own, you are currently in an acute state of need and that you can realistically repay your debt within 6 months.
Short-term credits serve to overcome temporary difficulties (for example, while waiting for your grant) and not to pay off debts. Debt collection will be enforced if payment is not punctual.
