Office of Financial Aid

We know that deciding how you are going to manage a financial plan for funding your medical school education is a major undertaking that requires solid information and careful planning.

We aim to be available, accountable, accessible in providing the financial aid information you need to help you find funding to support your medical studies.

This website walks you through the process of applying for financial aid and provides you with a list of all the materials you will need to complete as well as important deadlines. It contains information about available loans and scholarships for students in the MD and PA program.

Students in the PA Program are eligible for Federal Loans only. There is no institutional scholarship available for PA students.
