Financing a medical education is an expensive proposition.
The primary responsibility for meeting your educational costs rests with you and/or your family, but the Office of Student Affairs makes every attempt to assist you financially.
You will undoubtedly rely on student loans to finance your education. Approximately 85 percent of the student body borrows some type of federal loan.
The purpose of financial aid is to help students and families meet educational expenses that cannot be met through their own resources.
Financial aid can be either need-based or non-need-based. The results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with the cost-of-education will determine whether or not a student has financial need.
As a student borrower of Federal financial aid, there is vital information (including borrower rights and responsibilities and student aid eligibility) outlined in The Student Guide to Financial Aid published by the U.S. Department of Education. You are strongly encouraged to thoroughly read this important document.
