School of Medicine Supplemental Application for Scholarships and Loans
In order to be considered for scholarships and private loans available through the School of Medicine, students must complete the Supplemental Application by March 15th.
2016-2017 Financial Aid Processing On-Time File Completion Date is March 1st. The On-Time File Completion Date for need-based financial aid is March 1st (formerly known as Priority filing) of the calendar year prior to the academic year for which you want aid. (Example: For aid during the 2016-2017 academic year, one must have a complete file by March 1, 2016).
A complete file has no incomplete checklist items (no missing information), as determined by the University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. Please allow for an average processing time of 2-3 weeks.
Late FAFSA applications are accepted and considered, depending on adequate funding and processing time. Most aid programs have limited funding; applicants who have a complete file by the on-time file completion date are considered first for such aid.
Some forms of financial aid are available year-round. Applications can take time to process and must be sent to the federal processor at least 120 days before the beginning of the semester if financial aid is to be available for tuition deadlines.
Verification of Information
You may be required to submit an Independent Verification form (IVFI17). Only students who are requested by the University of Utah, University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to provide additional information need to do so. To avoid delays in processing their application, such students should respond immediately when asked to submit additional documents. Federal funds cannot be disbursed until required verification is completed. Keep copies of your tax forms, W-2's and all schedules!
The University will notify you via U-Mail when you have been awarded federal aid. This notice will give you directions to go to your Campus Information System website to review your Financial Aid Notification (Award Letter). If you will be accepting a Federal loan, you will need to accept the award via the website.
