An ACH (Automated Clearing House) is a transaction processed through an automated clearinghouse network which facilitates many electronic interbank funds transfers. An automated clearinghouse is operated for the benefit of a number of banks in order to efficiently process the transfer of funds electronically. Since an ACH typically operates only on weekdays, you may notice disclaimers like “next business day.”
If you carry only credit cards for day-to-day spending, you could find yourself in a pinch when confronted with a cash-only situation, such as buying lunch from a street vendor, veggies at a farmers market or a sandwich at a mom-and-pop deli. In that case, a cash advance might be tempting. Some people also turn to credit card cash advances when they need paper money but don’t have enough in their bank account.

The Amy Abboud ('87, '90) and Leslie Ware ('89, '92) Emergency Loan Fund is a revolving loan program established for the purpose of providing emergency loan assistance to law students who have unexpected financial needs arise during the course of the year above and beyond that which can be reasonably planned for or accommodated through the normal financial aid process. Generally, under the terms of the program, any currently-enrolled student who does not have an outstanding emergency loan may request to borrow up to $750. Loans must be repaid within three months, except for second semester third-year students who must repay their emergency loans prior to graduation.

Revolving credit isn't available to everyone. It takes time and resources to develop good credit, but for those without, getting approved for a credit card often depends on your ability to secure the credit line with a cash deposit. If you had the cash, would you need the credit? Probably not, so secured credit cards do not offer any emergency relief. When you live paycheck to paycheck, an unexpected illness, layoff or any other paycheck interruption could leave you looking at eviction notices, saying goodbye to your car or facing other financial disasters. When you need a loan, you need it quickly and without a lot of paperwork. That's where fast cash loans come in.
