SPH – School of Public Health

BUSPH

Student Financial Services (SFS) provides students with tools and guidance to manage financial aid while at Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) as well as the resources to be financially successful upon graduation.  Financial aid is offered each academic year and you must re-apply annually to be considered eligible to receive aid.

To determine eligibility for need-based funding, SFS evaluates each students income and assets. A student is considered independent for purposes of awarding Federal Financial Aid.

In addition to federal financial aid, students maybe offered merit- and need-based institutional financial aid, which may come in the form of scholarship or institutional loan funding, or both.

To be eligible for federal and/or need-based aid, you must be enrolled with six or more credits in your degree program.
