Office of Student Financial Services
Finding the right medical school and knowing how to fund your education can be difficult. It may also be the most significant investment you will ever make in yourself and your future. It is with that in mind that the Office of Student Financial Services is here to assist you with decision making before, during, and even after you graduate from medical school. We invite you to review the contents of these pages that include details on costs, sources of financial aid, and how to apply for and accept that aid.
If they need it, all medical students qualify for some form of financial aid to help meet both tuition and fees and even personal living expenses. While scholarships exist and are the preferred source of assistance, most financial aid nationwide for medical students is in the form of loans that must be repaid after leaving school. In fact, the AAMC has reported that in recent years 70% or more of graduates had medical school debt with a median of $200,000 borrowed. Knowing this we strive to maintain affordable tuition (including through reciprocity and in-state reclassification options) and to work with you to minimize any student debt as much as possible.
Our office is also here to support you in making sound financial decisions and take increasing control over your future. That may look like updating your monthly budget for a new phase of life, growing in your overall financial literacy, or navigating the myriad of loan repayment options available such as income-driven plans and Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
We hope this website is helpful in finding the information you need, and we look forward to working with you!
