Types of Aid

When you qualify for financial aid, we use a combination of resources to create your financial aid award. This may include scholarship funds, student employment, and loans, as well as any awards you’ve earned from outside sources.   Student Financial Services is continually seeking scholarship, loan and other opportunities to help make obtaining your health professional degree more affordable.


After we assess your financial situation, we may offer need-based scholarship assistance.  The Admission’s office determines merit scholarship assistance.  Learn more about scholarships.
