The Office of Student Financial Planning provides personalized assistance that serves the unique financial needs of each School of Medicine student.
Every medical school program has specific funding that can be combined with federal loan options from the Department of Education.
Aid for medical education / MD programs
Students in the medical education program are awarded merit-based scholarships from the Committee on Admissions. Need-based scholarships are awarded through the financial planning office. Each year the school’s tuition is frozen for the entering class, meaning the cost for each student is the same each year for all four years of medical school.
On average, our medical students graduate with debt significantly lower than the national average. In fact, our graduates’ average indebtedness is among the lowest of the 114 medical schools ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Only one other medical school besides Washington University reported average debt below $100,000 for graduates in 2016.
Aid for audiology, occupational therapy, physical therapy and biostatistics programs
For students enrolling in other programs (non-MD), the financial planning office primarily provides federal student loan aid combined with any program-available scholarships, work-study and assistantships.
