Tuition and Financial Aid

The School of Medicine (SOM) Office of Financial Aid is committed to providing students access to funds for which they qualify. We encourage all prospective students to begin the financial planning process early, and will work with you and your family to determine a financial plan for your education. Financial aid is limited primarily to student loans and we will assist you in obtaining loans from federal and private sources.

To begin the financial aid application process students must complete the School of Medicine financial aid application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The SOM Office of Financial Aid website will guide you through the process by providing clear instructions and important deadlines. We also provide links to assist you with budgeting and debt management.

The SOM Office of Financial Aid staff is available and happy to assist you. Please contact our office when you have questions or concerns.
