Financial Aid

The School of Medicine (SOM) Financial Aid Office provides financial aid counseling to students who are enrolled in various programs

The School of Medicine (SOM) Financial Aid Office provides financial aid counseling to students who are enrolled in Medical Doctor degree and various Ph.D. and Master's Programs including the Premedical Health Sciences Certificate Program (CERT). In order to serve its student body efficiently, the SOM maintains its own office of financial aid. The SOM Scholarship Committee, composed of administrators, faculty and appointed physicians from various specialties of medicine, makes policies for the awarding of institutional financial aid. Applicants seeking consideration for institutional scholarships must file the PROFILE application by CollegeBoard (https://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile) as well as the FAFSA 2018-2019 (https://fafsa.ed.gov) In addition, applicants may be asked to provide copies of their and/or their parents' Federal Income Tax Returns. Students seeking only loan assistance are not required to fill out PROFILE application. They must complete FAFSA for every academic year they are seeking federal student loan assistance. The School of Medicine Financial Aid Office also provides financial aid counseling to students who are enrolled in Premedical Health Sciences Certificate Program (CERT) and the School of Medicine Master's and Ph.D. programs.

Applicants who anticipate borrowing as a means of financing their medical education are advised to ensure that their personal credit record has no adverse credit history. The establishment of good credit is not a requirement for obtaining the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, but the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan takes credit history into account.

Financial need is not a factor in decisions regarding admission.
