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 their education before, during, and after medical school.
Each year you need to apply for institutional need-based aid by April 1. Please submit application forms through our secure SSB system using pdf versions. Beginning with the 2017-2018 application process, you will use earlier income and tax information. On the 2017–2018 FAFSA, you, your spouse, and your parent(s), as appropriate, will report 2015 income and tax information, rather than last year’s information. This is called Prior-Prior Year Income.
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. Also, 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 literacy programs through workshops and individualized counseling sessions to help build your financial foundation.
Other loan and scholarship opportunities are available and worth investigating during your medical school years. We have recently added a private loan marketplace, Fast Choice, giving you more loan options. Consider discussing your options with us prior to accepting your loans.
Each academic year, financial aid recipients have responsibilities that accompany awards. We will remind you through emails and have an open door policy if questions arise.
