GMS – Graduate Medical Sciences

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 federal financial aid, SFS must receive and review your submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A student is considered independent for purposes of awarding federal financial aid.

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