Medical school is worth the investment, and so are you!
The Alpert Medical School (AMS) Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to assisting students who may not have the financial resources to meet the full cost of attending medical school. We are here to help students navigate through the complexities of financing your education before, during, and after medical school.
Each year students need to apply for institutional need-based aid by March 1. Please submit application forms through our secure SSB system using pdf versions. On the 2020–2021 FAFSA, you, your spouse, and your parent(s), as applicable, will report 2018 income and tax information. This is called Prior-Prior Year Income. We will also need present day asset and household information.
Understanding need in relation to AMS funding will reap exponential rewards. The goal is to accept enough funds to live modestly and borrow just what is needed. We have recently added a private loan marketplace, Fast Choice, giving you more loan options. Comprehending how aid is disbursed and bills are paid will help with your budget planning. Annually budgeting your tuition, fees, and living expenses will help keep your borrowing limits as low as possible.
We promote financial wellness through workshops and individualized counseling sessions to help build your financial foundation.
Other scholarship and loan opportunities are available and worth investigating during your medical school years.
Each academic year, financial aid recipients have responsibilities that accompany aid packages. We will remind you through emails and have an open door policy if questions arise.
FOR YOUR PROTECTED SECURITY, we have implemented email encryption and encourage you to send documents through Self-Service Banner and certified mail.
