Lease / Loan for Equipment

The university is not planning to issue any new debt in fiscal year 2016. Therefore, this program is currently on hold until further notice.

If you have any questions, please contact Carolann Saggese.

The university implemented an internal lease (loan) program for departments to purchase equipment and to pay for the equipment in installments. This program was established to assist departments in purchasing equipment instead of entering into expensive external lease agreements.

Interest rate
6.0% for FY 2016 and for future years.
Repayment period
Repayment period is based on the life of the asset and the amount of funds borrowed. See University Policy 3.9, Capital Assets, Appendix A.
Procedures Please use the online form below.  If you have any questions or recommendations, please contact Carolann Saggese, Director, Debt (607) 254-1591.

  1. A unit representative with external transaction authority for the dollar amount of the purchase is required to sign the lease agreement.
  2. The CU Lookup button in the loan application works most effectively using the Firefox Web browser.
