Financial Aid Deadlines
Medical students who are interested in taking federal students loans need to start by filing the FAFSA. The medical school shares a federal Department of Education code with the main university. Financial Aid Awards are processed through the central Financial Aid Office. Medical students are considered part of the Graduate/Professional student population and will follow the policies, procedures, and timeline for this cohort.
Students who wish to be considered for scholarships available through the university should complete the general university scholarship application. These scholarship opportunities are open to continuing students as well as newly admitted students. The scholarship application opens early in the spring semester each year. Students are encouraged to pay close attention to announcements that go out concerning deadlines for scholarship applications.
For rising Med 2s, 3s, and 4s the College of Medicine Scholarship Application is available during the spring semester through Vitals. This application process is open to current students in the MD program only. Newly admitted incoming 1st year students are considered for scholarship separately and should not complete the survey for continuing students' scholarships.
