At the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, we recognize that financing your medical education is a significant undertaking. The financial aid office will work with accepted students to help obtain funding and guide them through the procedures to apply for scholarships, grants and federal or private student loans. Personal budgeting, debt management and student loan repayment counseling also are available. 

We are committed to selecting the best students possible to meet our mission, independent of their financial situation. The school will award academic, need-based and merit scholarships up to full tuition with special consideration given to individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds and students interested in primary care. In addition, foundation scholarships will be awarded annually.

Applying for Financial Aid

1. FAFSA Application

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after Oct 1.  Parental information is required for consideration of need-based funding. The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which becomes available on Oct 1. We recommend utilizing the IRS data retrieval tool (within the FAFSA) to expedite the process. Students who wish to be considered for institutional need-based funding must include parental financial information when completing the FAFSA. Students who exclude parental information will be considered for federal loans only. Our federal school code is 001402.

2. Complete the Merit Scholarship Application

To be considered for institutional merit funding, students need to complete a separate merit application, which will become available after Jan 1. More details on the merit scholarship applications are listed below.    

3. Award Letter

Review your award letter online and submit it electronically to our office. Once your FAFSA results are processed by the financial aid office, you will receive an email indicating that your award letter is ready. The electronic award letter specifies the types of financial aid and amounts for which you are eligible. You will be prompted to log into the self-service site to accept your awards. Once logged in, you need to accept or decline each individual fund when prompted and electronically sign your award letter. By submitting your electronic award, you are acknowledging your financial aid award and agreeing to abide by all of the terms and conditions set forth.

4. Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan

Before any federal direct unsubsidized loan can be disbursed, students need to:

  • Electronically accept the federal direct unsubsidized loan award (see Step 3 (above): Award Letter)
  • Complete online or electronic entrance counseling
  • Complete the Federal Master Promissory Note 

Once we have received these three completed requirements, your Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan will be precredited to your billing account. As long as your financial aid file is complete, your Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan will then be disbursed at the beginning of the fall and spring terms.

5. Balance Due

Once your aid has been processed and your loan deducted from your tuition and fees bill, you still may be left with an outstanding balance due. This balance can be paid through a Graduate PLUS Loan, alternative financing or a university payment plan.
