In the case of disbursement as a loan, a loan agreement with concrete repayment arrangements must be concluded.
As a rule, reimbursement is to be agreed within a period of three months.

An application can be submitted by all students of the Leipzig universities for which the Studentenwerk Leipzig is responsible and who have paid the semester contribution according to § 1 of the contribution regulations. The aid is available to students who are in financial need and out of debt.

A social emergency situation exists if the financial hardship cannot be reduced or averted in any other way. In particular, this applies, for example, if students are temporarily unable to cover the costs of their studies, living expenses, health insurance, semester fees or illness from their own funds.

An emergency situation through no fault of the applicant is deemed to exist if the applicant can credibly prove that they did not get into the financially difficult situation through their own fault. Suitable evidence must be provided by the applicant.
