Paying For Medical School

Ninety percent of medical students at The UT Health Science Center College of Medicine receive some form of financial assistance to cover their educational needs. To be eligible to receive financial aid, your first step is to complete [FAFSA] the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application.

The three (3) basic types of financial aid include: [1] grants;[2] scholarships and [3] loans. While the majority of aid awarded to medical students across the U.S., as well as, UTHSC, consists of loan programs, it should be noted that The UTHSC has several scholarship and need based awards available to qualified medical students.

The federal school code for the UTHSC is 006725.

Tuition and Fees

The Finance and Operations staff are here to serve the faculty, students and staff of the UTHSC campus. They are responsible for the financial integrity of the UTHSC, overseeing the revenue and expenditures for the campus and have the responsibility for the optimal management of the UTHSC's cash balances and reserves.

We are especially fortunate to have up to five [5] merit scholarships [of generous proportions] available annually.

Selection is based on: [1] academic achievement; [2] leadership ability; [3] interviews and [4] outstanding personal qualities. No application is necessary to be considered.
