What is Financial Aid
Financial Aid consists of any combination of scholarships and government insured or private loans awarded to students to help cover the cost of attending medical school. A student may receive federal aid at only one post secondary institution at a time.
The University of Utah School of Medicine and the Financial Aid Office assist students in meeting the cost of attending medical school through various scholarships and loans as described in "Types of Aid." However, it must be remembered that financial aid is supplementary to the contribution by the student and/or family. The student and family are expected to provide the maximum assistance possible.
